Can i change the speed sensor myself or is it a auto trans repair shop


the tranny is dying i think. you might've lost all your gears but 1st and 2nd thats why it's not shifting. if you have a semi-manual mode try all the gears and if they dont change then it definitely is the tranny

Car is very jerky


What kind of car? Without much detail it's really hard to diagnose this. Make, Model, Year, and a description of when it's jerky would help (braking, accelerating, coasting, etc.) Are there any other symptoms/sounds related to the jerkyness? Could be anything from a bad spark plug to a bad transmission to a out of balance tire.

It won't change gears and speedometer is jerky


I had the same problem with my 2002 Grand Caravan. It turned out to be a broken wire attached to the speed sensor on the transmission housing. Try that first!

1999 Toyota Camry: Transmission issue: When it changes from 1st to 2nd and sometimes 2nd to 3rd, it jerks. Is my trans about to go out or what?


after checking fluid level,as per the book,the only reason to be jerky is a harsh driving style(small engine/big car).try stopping,then without using the gas let the car accelerate to top gear,then try 1/2 throttle,again from stop,to see the difference between gear changes......you will see what i mean ..

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck
