Surely it's still under warranty.
I assume this is an automatic transmission.

You say it jumps into "limp" mode, which might mean a transmission problem. An ECU problem generally switches the ECU control to open-loop mode, which usually results in a loss of power rather than jerking.

The jerking under full load suggests to me that the transmission is "hunting" i.e. switching between adjacent gears because of a mechanical, hydraulic or electronic problem.

The Mercedes technicians KNOW what they are doing, and will be checking

  • the ECU and transmission computer (TCU) for the latest firmware versions
  • transmission control sensors
  • if required, removal of the transmission pan for internal inspection
  • the ABS system for any oddities in operation
  • the torque converter
The ECU, TCU and ABS systems all interact in subtle ways that may not be mechanically obvious.

You must understand that they will be reluctant to replace or rebuild the transmission unless they are absolutely certain of the necessity. They may also be unable to duplicate the problem. This is not uncommon.

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.

My grand prix jerks around 80 km/h. Also it jerks when trying to accelerate at times. This problem is intermittent at the moment. This problem started after the mechanic worked on an oil pan leak, front...

Did he weld it? If so, did he disconnect the battery?

I had a 1990 Cadilac Devile that jerked around 35 mph and it was missing on a cylinder because the fuel injector was not firing.

I wonder if this is happening to yours.

The solution, in my case, was another ecm because the old ecm was not firing the fuel injector.

You can check this by using a fuel injector tester that lights up or by listening to the fuel injectors click with a stethoscope.

I apply the gas it jerks or going u hill jerking i replace master sensor, fuel filter, and spark plug and wires

the next thing is to have the fuel preasure checked, not enough preasure will cause this. also you should have the computer scaned for codes, this is very helpful in finding the problem,may have a misfire or weak coil.start with these things and see what happens,a bad coil pack may be what you will find. hope this helps.

could be a couple of things. run a tank or two of premium fuel and a few cycles of good injector cleaner. if that doesn't work it could be that it just needs a tune up. then after that, things start getting expensive and complicated

Jerking while driving

If you park your vehicle for a long time, you run the risk of having contaminated fuel in the tank. This happened to a car my wife purchased, and it was the last thing I found. It proved to be the problem. What you need to do is remove the fuel from the tank and then have the tank flushed. Fill it with fresh fuel and replace the fuel filter.
