Alot of issues it can be. As simple as plugs, but could be coil packs or crank/camshaft sensors.

Engine management light and jerking hard going into gear

Well the very first thing you need done to start the diagnosis of this problem, is to have the fault code or codes read that were set in the PCM memory when the CEL light came on.

What is wrong with my car when it jerks in drive

jerks when?

moving the shift lever. with hand?

moving car. in gear,name the gear, drive, L or reverse?

jerks from, 1 to 2nd gear, 2nd to 3? or ? (or when IT down shifts)

pretend we are blind (we are) and cant drive car,(hopeless) and

tell us exactly what works and dont work driving.

hot /cold engine, fast /slow/ accelerating/ decelerating, up hills and what gears.

if engine is hot, is your idle at 800 RPM parked, in park.


if not the idle controls are out of control and when you shift to drive

IT will jerk. this is an engine problem.

there are lots of other symptoms.

When you give it some gas (when first starting) it jerks and loses power. I thought it would be the tranny wrong. Then I thought maybe the fuel pump wrong(had that replaced twice already) Thought just...

If the vehicle is an automatic and you start it and it jerks, there is something wrong with the transistor on the transmission which is somehow allowing it to engage a drive gear hence the losing power since the engine is trying to start while it is gear, cant turn over fully and fast enough to start with it in gear or slightly in gear. I would advise having a mechanic look at the transmission, might require an overhaul or just a transistor. Good Luck.

Replacing output speed sensor on 2002 sonata

Agreed, your sensore is telling you somethings wrong with the trany. replace the sensor last. from what you describe you have a worn out fritchion cltuch plate. check your trany fluid for shiny particles in the oil or paper like material. this is telling you your tranys clutch plates are going and going fast.

and to find the sensor it will be on the out put shaft part of the trany. it will be on the out side with 2 wires going to it. (this is a hall effect type sensor) it will have a retainer holeing it into place.(possibly an 8 mm bolt) sohuld be the same front and rear wheel drive. front wheel drive is harder to find but look at the axle shalfts and where they conect to the trany. this is the ddifferential. it should be close to this location if not look closer to the main body of the trany. along the back side closest to the fire wall.

2000 Buick Lasabre jerks

By jerking I am assuming you mean abrupt shifting? If so, my 2000 Buick Lesabre did the same thing going from first gear to second and then again when it went into overdrive. The culprit was the pressure control solenoid in the transmission. There is a pressure test to determine if it is bad. Apparently sediment from the trans fluid can cause this soleniod to stick and this coould be the cause of your problem.

Engine jerking

It could be a broken engine mount. Some times the rubber bush separates from the steel plate on the mount and although it will still sit on the mount, when driving and changin gear the engine will **** as there is nothing holding it to the chassis at that point. I would check these as a first step then see how you get on.

Try a new set of plugs and an injection flush for the power problem.

Hope this helps
