The TPS has very specific adjustments to set it correctly. Did you just bolt it back on or go throught the adjustment procedure?

When stopped at traffic light or just stopped with motor running it has a jerking motion, have just had one of the fuel injectors replaced, it looses power when driving has plenty of power taking off


If you have a check engine light on, pull the code. Jerking while stopped is often a sign of needing a tune up, but it can be other things too. If it's been a while since last tune up, change plugs and wires.

VO Polo 1.9 TDi jerking intermittently. Switched the car on this morning and the engine light is on as well as the car jerking all the time. Please help!!!


check the motor mounts. also check to make sure that its not miss firing. if its miss firing could be as simple as just needing a tune up. if engine light is on it is most likely misfiring and needs a tune up. if its jerking when you put it in gear this is a problem with the transmission. if its an automatic you may need to change the transmission fluid filter and gasket. if you can do this yourself it will run you about 40 bucks

I have a 1994 buick skylark with 2.3 and a/t it runs and drives great except when slowing from high speeds it dies when approaching a stop. it jerks like transmission isn't shifting. when u restart it,...


Check for vacuum leaks on all hoses underhood. Make sure all intake componets are intact and they are tight.

Is the check engine light on? If so, get to an auto parts store, they should pull the codes for free.

Sounds almost like a bad throttle position sensor. The computer uses the TPS to help know when to shift on this car if I remember right, and if the TPS is bad, it can cause that jerking. Along with the car dying when slowing down after driving. But check everything else out first. Including electrical connections.

It means the engine mounts and tranny mounts are shot replace them and it will stop! Also your idle might be too high due to a TPS sensor malfunction.
