My jeep has had the same jerking problem for about 3 months. And last week it started boiling in the over flow jug. But never went over 220 on the temp gauge. 3 days latter it just died driving down the road and started smoking under the hood. It was way over heated . And would not start back up after cooled off. Come to find out it blew the head gasket.

My Chery tiggo 1.6tx 2010 model is jerking while I driving


It depends on how violent the jerking is? Could be as simple as a plug &/or lead breaking down or as complicated as a fuel delivery problem. Sorry not much help, but I don't have much to go on..

Started jerking when I take off after changing from first to second, third etc.


Master or slave cylinders. I would replace both. If the slave is inside the trans mission. Start with the master. The slave is a transmission pull.

It could be the converter is going bad or a sensor.next time you are driving it and it is jerking put your foot on the brake pedal,dont put the brakes on like you are trying to stop just push lightly on the pedal.This unlockes the converter.if it stops jerking you have a bad converter or a sensor related to it.

1999 jeep grand cherokee jerks from first to second only once in second its fine


Sounds like this may be either a sticking valve in the transmission valve body or a possible worn clutch pack in the automatic transmission itself, I would suggest checking the transmission fluid to verify that it is at the proper operating range when hot. If the fluid level is full, i would suggest taking it to either the dealer or a transmission shop for further diagnosis... Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 Dodge Stratus and it ran fine up until today. I was driving down the highway all the sudden the car jerked and then it was like someone put on the brakes. Then I had no drive, reverse, low or...


indicates that the oil cooler in the radiator has split and water filled the transmission
if that is the dip stick you referred to, the fix is a new radiator and a professional flush from an automatic transmission specialist shop

When I take off from a dead stop the vehicle jerks 3 times consistantly. I've tried manually shifting,accelerating slowly, accelerating quickly and it still jerks 3 times nearly every time


i think this is impossible to tell you without being able to drive the car.things are more complicated then we would like. the fact that taking off slowly also causes this jerking seems to eliminate an enginge missfire which would be the first thing that would probably cause jerking. does it feel like the rear prakes are sticking on thi can be a problem with the parking brake cables rusted inside ther casing.four wheel drive problems could be a u jouint or drive shaft issue. have a mechanic at least drive it to get som feel for where the problem is.

Jerking problem


It sounds like the truck might be 'hunting' for it's gear - try shifting the transmission down one notch, and see if this stops the jerking... at least it will give you a better indication of the problem.

I have a 2000 Grand Jeep Cherokee, I was driving along the freeway maybe doing about 60mph when my jeep suddenly jerked, when it did this my emissions light came on. I pulled over in a parking lot checked all my fluids oil, transmission fluid, everything seemed okay, as I was getting back on the freeway I watched the R PMs that was fine and my emission light went off.
