Many thing can cause this problem, the first step is to scan the computer to see why engine light is on, there will be codes stored, these codes will tell you what part of the system is failing, there are many autopart stores that will scan the engine light at no charge , if you get the codes i can help you further, hope this is helpful.

When I accelerate from a stop, why does it jerk and buck?


Maybe you have a engine misfire , not transmission problem ! Is the check engine light on or flashing ? Have you had spark plugs an wires changed ? Or maybe mass air flow sensor is dirty or bad ! I suggest you have the vehicle hooked up to diagnostic scan tool !

My car jerks going down the road its a 95 Buick century and it changes gears fine when I take off just stares jerking a few days ago


When you say it "jerks," this description could fit several actual symptoms. If by "jerks" you mean the engine misfires, it could be caused by the need for a major tune-up (including plug wires and distributor cap), or it could be a problem with fuel delivery, contaminated fuel, or defective components in the fuel system.
I assume the CHECK ENGINE light is on (and has probably been illuminated for some time now). Begin by doing a readout of the stored codes, and use the results to begin your diagnosis.
If by "jerks" you mean the transmission is slipping (engine revs but car slows down or doesn't accelerate), you have a transmission issue. If the transmission fluid and strainer/filter have not been replaced within the past 5 years or 50,000 miles, have a complete transmission service performed.
If by "jerks" you mean that the steering wheel wobbles or pulls, you have a problem with the front suspension.
If by "jerks" you mean that the car shudders or pulls when you apply the brakes, you need brake work.
I think I covered all of the "jerks." ;)

VO Polo 1.9 TDi jerking intermittently. Switched the car on this morning and the engine light is on as well as the car jerking all the time. Please help!!!


check the motor mounts. also check to make sure that its not miss firing. if its miss firing could be as simple as just needing a tune up. if engine light is on it is most likely misfiring and needs a tune up. if its jerking when you put it in gear this is a problem with the transmission. if its an automatic you may need to change the transmission fluid filter and gasket. if you can do this yourself it will run you about 40 bucks

2004 honda accord automatic gear jerking, what could be the likely cause and solution


Has the transmission control module been scanned for fault codes? This is an electronically controlled transmission. Do you have any flashing lights or a check engine light on by chance?

Car won't accelerate and when it does it jerks hard. can't get over 50 mph


MAKE SURE YOUR ENGINE FINE TUNE. CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL.IF FLUID LEVEL OKAY.DO A FILTER AND TRANSMISSION FLUID CHANGE IF ONE HAS NOT BEEN DONE A LONG LONG TIME.SOUND LIKE TRANSMISSION SLIPPING. IF FLUID + FLUID LEVEL OKAY AND FILTER HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE.YOUR TV SHIFT CABLE LOOSE NEED ADJUSTING. IF YOU SEE A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHING LOOK FOR TRANSMISSION FAULT CODES LIKE TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH SOLENOID OPEN OR FAULTY TORQUE CONVERTER.YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY SHIFT VALVES.BEST GET CAR CODE SCAN.YOU HAVE MANY SHIFT VALVES.
