Have you tried changing your plugs and try cleaning your air filter because the jumping feeling sounds like it may be missfiring and this is what could cause this most of the time.

Car "bucking"


Are you pulling a trailer or have a heavy load - you should not drive in overdrive in those conditions. You will eventually ruin your transmission.

2000 Ford Taurus. Would fill up with gas when close to empty or light come on. Then a couple weeks ago,gas gauge was on 1/4 tank then went a little lower and engine started bucking. Then light came on. ...


change the fuel filter for one, this is telling you that your pick up in the tank is getting clogged, I would drop my tank, and drain it, flush it, and check the pump at that time

Most cooling fans will turn on when the car is cranked. The bucking could be from when the engine compensates for the added load thats when you feel the buck. If you think the bucking is excessive the engine maybe compensating too much and you may need to run it by your local shop. Call your dealer, it might be a known issue or recall.

Hit the gas and get a bucking, bucking and more bucking.


There's alot that can cause this problem. Check battery cables and clean. Drive to autoparts place for free diagnostic. It could be a throttle position sensor, EGR valve, bad gas, bad coil, bad plug wires. Just to name a few. Hopefully the diagnostic test will pinpoint it.

Stalling And Engine Revving


Sounds like a transmission problem. My car was doing that and it turns out it had a transmission fluid leak that had led to major transmission damage. The bad news: the entire transmission had to be rebuilt.

Bucking on Hard Acceleration


You best bet would be to look for the vacuum diagram and just take a day to make sure all of the lines to the engine and tranny are all correct. If its not it and while bucking the car feels like its going to turn off on you then it maybe a fuel delivery problem.
