92 4Runner automatic, runs great, put in drive, start down the road and at about 1850rpms cuts off.

Things to check first are fuel pressure and spark. Rig up something you can watch during a driveability (road) test. if neither of the two quits working when the engine dies, check for correct ignition timing (and advance) and injector pulses at the injectors.since the engine idles, the problem is probably not a tired engine, but possibly a sketchy sensor (crankshaft or camshaft position), engine computer, or spark controller. Not so expensive to replace, but no fun to troubleshoot.

2002 Altima, jerking when driving, ABS kick in, ABS. Tracking Control and Slip...

My 2002 Altima Sometime the ABS kick in even though in a nice sunny dry road condition, sometime jerking when driving (doesn't matter high or low speed), sometime ABS. Tracking Control and Slip lights all on at the same time.

I did a lots of research over the internet, not much firm solution I can find. A lot of tech suggest the ABS sensor, MAF sensor, Spark plugs and/ or wires, Fuel injectors, Cad converter, etc. but no one know what is the exact problem is because it only happened intermittently.

But if I unplugged one of the ABS sensor, the ABS system will disable, the ABS. Tracking Control and Slip lights will all turn on, but the car have no more jerking and ABS kick in problem. So it will not be the MAF sensor, Spark plugs and/ or wires, Fuel injectors, Cad converter, etc.

To diagnostics and replaced a ABS sensor are very expensive, especially everyone said, when removed the sensor, 99% of the time the blot will break, it need a lots of time to get the remaining bolt back out, that is one of the reason which causing the repair cost so expensive, take up to $300 to 400 to change one sensor.

I am going to show you how to replace both sensor in a very cheap way.

Most of the forum I found and the majority possible problem cause are the rear ABS sensors. Not quite sure left or right, so I went to the Pick and Pull yard to bought a used pair of rear ABS sensors, it cost me CND$30.00, $15.00 each. Way cheaper than you take it out to just get diagnostic.

Follow the sensor wire and plug to replaced both sensors. My car run perfect now, no more jerking, no more ABS kick in by no reason, no more warning light turn on anymore.

Now comes to the biggest problem, when I removed the old sensor, I knew the bolt was going to broke. How can I re-tighten it back? No problem, just let it broke.

This is the way how I fix it: cut a piece of solid electrical wire, about 7 inch long, peel off the wire skin, I only need the copper wire (because copper wire is rust and heat proof).
Unscrew both bigger wheel bearing screws beside the sensor.
Bend the copper wire wrap around the screws, the middle of the wire need to put it through to hold down the back side of the sensor, when tighten the screws back, both screws will tighten the wire and hold down the sensor.

It is very hard to explain , I am going to attach some pictures to show everyone. Basically, with the tax I use around $32.00 to fix the problem.

Sorry about the last picture is quite fuzzy, it is hard to let my camera to get it focus properly, but you should be able to see it.

Because I already did mine, so I just use another screws to show everyone in the pictures how to do it. Also sorry for my English, hope every can understand what I mean.

Cut a wire around 7 inch long.

Peel off the wire skin, only need a solid copper wire

Bend it and wrap around the screw (in clockwise direction because it will be tighten in the same direction), cut the excessive length of wire if need

After bend will be in S shape.

Will mount it back to the car like that.

Finished, when tighten both screws, it will hold the sensor down tight.

EGR - remove the 2 bolts that secure it to the intake ... soak it in throttle body cleaner and use a toothbrush to clean the carbon out - use a new gasket and re-install - EASY to do !! probably the most common cause of "hiccups" and "rough idle". have you cleaned the throttle body, it may be dirty. you can try by changing plugs, but it can also be a bad coil. but the light on dash would come on if it is misfiring. there are so many possabilitys for jerking. go to auto zone site and sign in, type in your problem and it should tell a few causes.

Car cuts out while driving down the road. All the dash are on, check engine, service engine, ect.

Your car is shutting off. That's why all the dash lights come on. Why is the car dying on you is the question. Number of things. Tune up replace the spark plugs and wires. Replace all filters fuel, air. Right now I would suspect the fuel filter. I would go there first.
I hope my suggestions helps and all the luck to you.

I have a toyota camry and my car jerks and when i turn the ac on it cuts off should i get new spark plugs and wires

The jerking can be caused by the A/C compressor cutting in & out causing a extra drag on the engine.This is usually caused by low freon presure.

Check the spark plugs, and wires. If you see nothing wrong here, it may be getting just enough of gas to keep it running (ALMOST CUTTING OFF, BUT A SHOT OF GAS BARELY KEEPS IT GOING) this could cause it to jump and hop. If this is the case then it may need a fuel system cleaning, one of the injectors may not be functioning at the right PSI. I don't think it would be the ignition coil.

For something like this it could be a number of differnet things. I suggest that the next time your vehicle cuts out on you check for sufficent ignition spark. you can do this by removing a spark plug wire from a spark plug and holding it close to a ground on the engine (or if your brave enough you can grab it lol). and if you do not have spark then i would suggest to replace the ignition coil. if you do have spark then i would check for proper fuel pressure.
