I have a 2003 ford focus 5 speed, recently while driving at about 50mph i could feel the car hesitate like it was wanting to cut off fast foward a few weeks and its hesitateing jerking and not picking up...

I would assume that whom ever you went to,
didn't even test drive the car.

You never leave a vehicle at a shop,that you
do not go for a test drive, with you driving,you can switch
on the way back to the shop

There a too many possible things to check & test to
write a book on here

The TPS Sensor
The Egr Valve
Ignition Misfires
Fuel Pressure Issues

That is just a few common things

You know there is a problem
You also know that being told they could not find
anything is unacceptable

It is especially hard the last 20 years, and very difficult to find
a repair shop & even a dealer sometimes, that is
knowledgeable enough or willing to spend time
to help you


Takes too long

Costs you too much

The shop looses money,as the
quick jobs keep the money coming
in ,so they stay in business,barely

The truck has a horrible sound coming from the top of the motor, it is very loud and when driving between 45 and 55 feels like a jerking motion back and fourth any ideas what the problem could be chevy...

Try driving it at that speed with your foot slightly on the brake pedal. (enough to put the brake lights on). If your lock up torque converter is acting up, riding the brake will dis-allow it from locking. Do this to see if it might be a lock up converter issue. (They usually lock up for better gas milage around 45-50 miles per hour.)

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

When was the last timing belt installed on your Rodeo? Sounds like the belt has enough stretch to it that it's retarding the timing now.
