2002 toyata avalon runs good when cold after 5 mins car starts jerking and slowing down .then resumes as if nothing has happened. scared me to death. car was running great now this . what could be wrong?

dont get scared, brakes work?

all cars, can do that. in fact your drivers ed, person should have demonstrated it. (stall engine, on safe road and see how brakes and steering get hard, so you dont panic on the road, practice !!!)

so look at the dash, see all them lamps, one is CEL

if RPM is still above 800rpm (bad if not) the CEL must not

glow driviing.

if it did , there are scan codes to read, to see what happened.

1: get a tuneup, (spark parts, fluids and filters.)

sounds like engine problems to me, but with A/T tranny , they can fail and slip, and jerk, so watching the tachmeter will tell you which is failing. got a Tacho meter in dash? most good cars do.

if rpm drops below 800 hot, that is idle fail or stall.

if cruising and rpm lurches way high, that is tranny slip, (bad)

there are some checks for you.

id stay in the slow lane,sure would. till fixed.

My 1994 caravan drives about 200 feet then starts slipping.If I turn the ignition off and back on it will go another 200 feet.friends told me it is some sort of sensor .does any know whats going on .thanks

Please define the word "slipping" for me. To me it means the transmission is "slipping", the van is going down the road, and then the engine RPM's are still there, but the van keeps slowing down ? You try to put on more acceleration, but the engine revs up higher, but you go nowhere ?
Please let me know.

Van dies when i sit at idle...

If I were you I would look at the Mass Airflow Sensor. If you diconect it and the problem gets better it's a sign that it's out. when you disconect it it puts of in to a default mode. So I am leaning twards that.

1992 Dodge 250 van, 318, Automatic - Dies when coming to a stop

I cannot see how adding a fuel additive would help to be honest. I would be looking for a split or leaking vacuum line, I have even seen a leaking evap canister before that caused a similar problem. Does the engine pull clean and strong when it is warm or at cruising speeds? Does it feel like its running lean or misfiring?

I am driving on the freeway, when I slow down to exit it dies

Check the distributor coil, cap, rotor etc. Check for cracks on all of them.
