    at either 3000 or 3500 rpms it slows then when given more gas jerks and begins to accelerate as normal..the code it is throwing is p0171 engine running lean.

    ive been told it was the oxygen sensor...what did you do to fix this?

I was driving home on the interstate at 70 miles an hour in 5th gear and my car started jerking. why????


The engine has developed a misfire,most likely. Did the check engine light come on or start flashing? If so, find out what codes has set to determine which cylinder is misfiring and then proceed with the repair.

What when my car gets to the speed between 60 mph to 70 mph the car starts to jruk.


If the car has no Check Engine light, and it operates well at all other speeds, then I have a question to ask.....have you had the vehicle for a while and is this a speed range that you drive at consistently for extended periods of time? I say this because if you drive at consistent speeds for long periods you can actually wear a dead spot in the throttle position sensor (TPS). This will cause a drop-out at the point of the dead spot which feels like a jerking motion.

I have a 1994 buick skylark with 2.3 and a/t it runs and drives great except when slowing from high speeds it dies when approaching a stop. it jerks like transmission isn't shifting. when u restart it,...


Check for vacuum leaks on all hoses underhood. Make sure all intake componets are intact and they are tight.

Is the check engine light on? If so, get to an auto parts store, they should pull the codes for free.

Sounds almost like a bad throttle position sensor. The computer uses the TPS to help know when to shift on this car if I remember right, and if the TPS is bad, it can cause that jerking. Along with the car dying when slowing down after driving. But check everything else out first. Including electrical connections.

Transmission Slight Jerking When Slowing & Accelerating


Have you changed the trasmission fluid and filter in your jeep lately, if not do so and that just might stop the jerking in your jeep, and if that does not do the trick you will need to have your trasmission checked out by a trasmission shop.

Jerking motion


Is the check engine light on? If it is, take it to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault codes stored in the car's computer. Most stores provide this as a free service. The code(s) will help narrow down the problem. Hope this helped.

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
