When is the last time you have done a tune up. many things could be the problem but to me it sounds as if it is starving for fuel, so you may want to check your fuel filter, plugs and wires. if they haven't been changed and the manufacturers recommendations call for it, do it and see what happens. You can pull a plug and tell if the plug is bad, are you getting bad gas mileage when it does run? plug wires that are rally bad will ark and you can either hear them ark or actually see them ark in the dark of hte night good luck.

Why car wont pick up speed when i get to 40mph then jerks and pick up speed


Does it down shift appropriately when accelerating? Normally when you stomp on the gas while in a high gear (travelling at 40mph), the transmission will downshift to a lower gear giving the car much more torque. This can cause the car to jolt or jerk forward and accelerate suddenly.



If this is way off base and you\'re experiencing something else, please let me know

ENGINE HESITATES WHILE ACCELERATION

LOSS OF ACCELERATION


It can be fuel pressure issue or it's the problem with accelerator pedal or its clogged filters causing there.

There are many other possibilities. I suggest you to go through the list of help links mentioned below, these will help you to confirm where the actual fault lies: -------

2005 honda accord diesel, Jerking when accelerate


1: Change your fuel filters and bleed the air out of it.
2: Check all rubber hoses for loose hose clamps and
cracks or leaks.
Almost certainly in one or both of the two points above.

2004 Audi A4 1.8 - jerks/jolts while accelerating from 0-20 mph


It sounds like there may be an issue with your ignition system.

Check the ignition wires, distributor cap, spark plugs.

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck

The car jerks while we drive


Check your air intake tube for any cracks. The jolting could be caused by improper air flow.
