When the aircon is switch on it puts a substantial load to the engine: you need to get your car tuned to take into account the load from the aircon. Most car have a mechanism that increases the idle speed when the aircon is active: if you are unable to get your car tuned yet, try making the engine idle speed slighty faster while you have the aircon turn-on (the ajustment screw should be close to the accelator cable connection at your engine end). Don't make the idle speed too high and check by turning the aircon off and on to assess the best compromise idle speed to stop your car from almost stalling (e.g. jerking).

Good luck!

My Subaru is making a jerking feeling


What year? What model? Jerking... when? Where do you feel the jerk? Do you have a "Check Engine" light on the dash?



You may have just lost a front axle. The rubber boot around the CV joint cracks, and dirt gets in and ruins the CV joint. This shows up as a sideways jerking in the steering wheel, rapidly getting worse and worse. It feels dangerous, and it IS dangerous. If it\'s allowed to continue, it could break the axle shaft - you certainly don\'t want that to happen on the highway.



If you\'re NOT talking about a sideways jerking in the steering wheel, please desribe what you DO feel, and when it happens, and if your "Check Engine" light comes on. It might possibly be nothing more serious than your air conditioner turning on & off.

I just purchased a 98 Eddie Bauer Ford expedition and upon going over 50 or cutting on the air conditioner,it has a dragging feeling while I'm pressing the gas and then begin jerking. Accelerating on RPM....


IN the USA?
The car has OBD2 PCM.,
so the dash lamp called CEL glows. telling you that it is is misfiring
the lamp comes on or worse flashes, (in Canada it may not. glow)
the best practice, no matter, is have a scan tool connected to see if you get DTC errors. up hill. (and live sensor data , is better)
did you do the 60k mile service yet, every 60k, if not BINGO.
jerking is misfire.
the CEL on USA cars glows, then,
SPark plug , love to misfire , uphill, the more load the more pressure
the more likely the fail, can be seen on all good PRO spark plug testers. (pressure test machine)

can be one of 3 things.
1: lost compression on 1 or more cylinders.
2: bad spark to same.
3: bad fueling (too lean or too rich)
simple tests find true cause, got tools.? if not, its guessing time.

Hesitation or jerking when proceeding forward


Remove the mass air flow sensor and clean it.You can get mass air flow sensor cleaner at most part stores.The sensor is on the air cleaner tube that goes into the throttle body.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Car jerks when slowing down or stopped, CEL on


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

Santa Fe makes jerking motions


the air conditioning changes your idle speed when the compressor cycles on and in some vehicles will cause the problem you have.
it is the design and there is nothing you can do about it

My car cuts off at times right after it is cranked. At other times when stopped at a stop light but starts back up. Also, when driving it is hesitating and jerking.


It sounds like you have a bad MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor). This is in your air inlet tube, pull this out and check to see if there is any corrosion on it. If is one that has a coiled exposed wire, then ensure that the wire is not broke.
