Why the sudden jerking?


Fuel filter clogged and or impurities in the fuel system.faulty or incorrectly gapped spark plugs.Fault in fuel electrical system.Defective spark plug wires. Faulty emission system components.Vacuum leaks at the throttle body intake manifold or vacuum hoses. I would first look at the fuel inline filters it sounds like this is the likely problem.

I have a 1997 nissan sentra with 1.6 litter engine. It has 171000 miles. The other day I run my car very low on fuel and went around a sharp curve (345 degrees) when I came out of the curve the car acted...


most likely a bad fuel pump, do you hear it hum when the key is on? fuel pump has to pump 180 pounds of pressure to operatethe motor, some pumps do come on but don't pump enough pressure for car to run.if ou have spark but no run, it's a fuel issue. you wre right o replace the inline filter, that's where i would've started.i suggest you replace that fuel pump. if you disconnect the fuel line at filter@ turn the key on, the gas should shoot out about 20 feet. hop this helps!!

Transaxle warning light came on while driving on highway. Pulled off the highway. Light went off. Pulled back onto highway. Light staying off for now


Watch out! You're lucky the violent lunging didn't happen prior to the light, as well as losing all power when the engine cuts outs. After this happened to me, the light was steadily flashing and the van would not go into gear. Good luck, I'm still waiting to see if a recall is gonna happen. Very dangerous.

Jerks violently like it wants to shut off.


I would start with the fuel system. It sounds like a fuel issue, check for pump pressure. See if there is water in the fuel. Does it only **** when the vehicle is under a load, meaning that if you increase the RPM's in park, it runs fine? You can also check for vacuum leaks, see if it needs a tune-up, and check the timing.

Jumping or jerking when i accelerate


I had a turbo renault , I cranked the wastegate down to increase boost and had same problem.
There was a sensor that cut the ignition if the turbo was over pressuring. Was a pretty violent jerking, felt like it was tearing the engine mounts out.
