Hi

This is one of 2 faults common with this car.

Either the EGR valve "exhaust gas recycler" or the air mass sensor also known as the MAF sensor.

I would bet on it being the EGR as the engine light is on, you can remove this and clean it, that often does the trick. also you can clean the air mass sensor, certainly worth a go as these can be expensive parts. the air mass is pretty chep but the EGR can be a few hundred dollars.

Hope this helps

I have a 99 Buick regal Ls 3.8. Recently I've been having problems with power getting up hills and it jerks also when I start slowing down! When i step on the gas the RPMs go up but doesnt shift going up...


Check engine light on or flashing ? Engine misfire an you fried the catalytic converter but that is just a guess without testing . Can't help you don't have a lot of money . Your best option , take it to a qualified repair shop an have it tested properly .Don't guess ,test .

Jerks and looses power on hills and flat land no engine light comes on what can be wrong?


When you said it feels like its not getting enough gas, you may be right.
Since you have replaced the fuel filter, and you are not getting a check engine light, my suggestion would be to check fuel pressure with a gauge. The fuel pump may be weak.

Could be fuel filter. When you need more gas for power going up hill your engine can't get enough.

Hesitation , skipping,engine cuts out when accelerating


Im having the same issue I believe. I have a 94\' Chevy 1500 and when i accelerate it will jerk like the gas has cut out but it wont stall. It just jerks and slows me down. It only seems to do it when going up a hill. I feel like it could be the fuel pump or possibly some intake gaskets?

1999 Dodge Intrepid engine jerks, cuts off when slows down/stops


Amattison:

Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.

2002 Ford Explorer Jerking when in motion


Does the jerking feel like a fish bite ( especially when pulling a hill?) if so it may need plugs and wires

if you have one bad plug wire the problem seems to smooth out at higher speeds

Hope this helps
