2002 Kia Spectra Jerking Problem

2002 Kia Spectra check engine light came on and now the car jerks. What is the problem?

Posted by on

  • Robert Moore Apr 28, 2010

    Took 2002 Kia Spectra to AutoZone to see why check engine light is on. After check, AutoZone came up with (Code P0741). The definiton it gave me for this code was torque converter stuck off. Probable causes:

    1. Open or short circuit condition
    2. Poor electrical connection
    3. Faulty torque converter solenoid.

    Are these serious problem and how can I get them fix?

Check engine light comes of when the computer gets a sensor reading out of range. This could be an oxygen sensor(most likely) which will reduce performance of the engineand cause jerking. Most auto parts stores-autozone,advanced auto or O'rieley-will scan computer and tell you which sensor triggered check engine light. good luck

    this could be if it is the solenoid. has there been any accidents with this car? Wiring runs across front of car and can be damaged in collision or by something getting under the car while driving. Try to visually inspect wire connectors that will be on top of transmission possibly under air filter box. Thanks for the reply I will watch my email for another

Car is jerking when slowing down to stop at a stop sign then starts in wrong gear. No engine light on. issue resolved during the colder months,now warming so issue back.What could cause this?


You need to have the transmission inspected. If it has over 60,000 miles on it and the fluid in the transmission has never been changed do that first.

Transmission fluid levels


just add to the cold line when cold... when the car warms up the water will rise close to the top with out overflowing.. And on a side note.. engine "jerking" can radiator capacity have almost nothing to do with wach other unless you have a blown head gasket..

Transmission is jerking violently then will not


That sounds like solenoid problems if this is an electrically controlled transmission. Fluid and filter change will likely NOT fix this. Flushing and filter change is preventive, not repair. Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner and read the code(s). It should point out problems with transmission control. You likely need the services of a good transmission repair facility (many penny!).

2002 Ford Explorer Jerking when in motion


Does the jerking feel like a fish bite ( especially when pulling a hill?) if so it may need plugs and wires

if you have one bad plug wire the problem seems to smooth out at higher speeds

Hope this helps
