You may need a tune up . When was the last time you changed plug wires and had a decent tune up that will cause a vehicle to jerk when reaching higher gears the more strain on the engine the more it will jerk!!!
Hi Kristopher, A shudder from the manual transmission is usually caused from a defective part in the clutch assembly. It could be caused by uneven wear of the pressure plate (clutch cover) or wear on the clutch plate boss (The center of the clutch plate with the springs or rubbers which absorb the torque when releasing the pedal) A shudder can be generated from a defective engine or gear box mount, worn CV joints or spiders or a loose bell housing. Start with the last suggestion and work backwards as the clutch replacement will require the most work. If the clutch assembly has been replaced recently, and the parts available are of the same quality we receive where I am, you will need to do the job over. Regards John
I had something similar happen. My check engine light never came on but i did experience the jerking between the 30 and 40 mph mark. Have your fuel injector checked to see if its dirty. Also have your fuel lines checked to see if you have water in it and have them check the transmission fluid. its possible you can be low. When I had the problem i did all 3 of these things. My car does not **** anymore.
