You said it all. When a car jerks it means it is not firing as expected which could be due to fuel pressure not adequate, air intake not enough or too much, sparks not been produce at the right time or engine management problems (sensors etc). from what you said i would start with locating the source of the oil consumption. If there is visible oil around the engine, this might not be cause of the jerking. If the oil leaks is not visible it could be due to cylinder\piston wear. Dirty air filter, spark plugs, plugged fuel filter and bad spark plug cable could also cause jerking so you might want to consider giving your car a tune up also

Jerking accelerating


**** = jeeeerk.....?
no year, stated. wow ! 1993 to present.!
only Jeep GC.
no engine stated. nor transmission option type,?
stalls, all stalls end with the CEL glowing this is NORMAL the CEL
the CEL glows at key on, for self test. and at all stalls.
if you had looked closer at the cluster ,lots of lamps glow , at self test.

the jeerking (spelled wrong to fool the stupid bad words engine)
Jeerking is usually engine gross misfire, or loss of DC 12v electical power to the EFI systems. called DC power loss or battery power lost.
if all lamps in the car work , radio, heater blower, dash lamps all work
then the DC power is ok, Head lights work at STALL.?
it's not the transmission

so its just an engine stall. (RPM was 0, is the big clue there)
engine RPM = 0 is a stall.
cause by gross misfire, The PCM does many things to stop all stalls.
but cant correct gross misfire, it cant.
top reasons on jeeps is....

or the JEEP ASD relay dropped you out)
btw: ever get a tune up this decade or every 60k miles?
if not , why not?

There are all these ways for the ASD relay to drop.
here are all ASD causes.

there are tests for each drop logic path..
many are simple, did the SKIM lamp glow?
what I do after a real tune up is.

connect a scan tool and drive.
and bam, communications failure, you lost 12vdc power to the PCM.
bad 12v power. (loose fuses to PCM?) battery cable lugs GREEN?

or you get DTC errors. live or pending or freeze frame seen.
got DTCs?, BINGO.

The PCM even tells you ASD pin errors.
bad ignition coil (s)?
etc.

Code p0011 bank 1 intake timing position is over advance,oil light flashes/comes on when i take off/slow down or at complete stops


The computer controls the cam timing by using a solenoid valve inside the engine. The valve works by oil pressure.
The code means the computer can not control the valve timing. Usually the valve is faulty or there is a problem with oil pressure.
Since you say the oil pressure light is coming on, I would expect to find a problem with the oil pump or excessive dirt in the engine.
If the oil pressure switch is good, it will turn the light on when the oil pressure drops below 5 psi. And if it is that low, I doubt oil is reaching the valves.

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

My 2000 Toyota Echo has the red engine temp light flashing. I checked the coolant container about an hour after I parked in the shade of my house. (95 degrees here today and I was driving on the highway...


a flashing check engine light (CEL) is a warning to stop driving-one that is on steady (not blinking) means something is wrong, but blinking is BAD-make sure it is completely cooled down, and fill the overflow/surge tank, start it up (use 50/50 antifreeze) and let it idle until the engine temp is all the way up-this can take 10-15 minutes, make sure the heater is on high temp setting and the fan is on-look at the temp gauge if it has one to see if it looks normal. If all looks good, fill the tank to the FULL mark (or a hair above it) and put the tank cap on tight. Drive the car for about 10 minutes, and pay attention to the temp gauge-if it looks good, and the engine is alright, the CEL probably with either not light or will go off by itself.

It is possible you did damage driving it with a flashing CEL, however-if so look for leaks, smoke out of the exhaust, poor running/performance, or more ominous signs of trouble like air bubbles in the overflow tank, oil in the antifreeze of antifreeze in the oil-aluminum engines do NOT tolerate overheating, if you ever see a high temp gauge and/or a flashing CEL-STOP and get it checked out, you will save yourself a lot of money being prudent.

Amattison:

Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.
