Does the car 'creep' excessively? If so, your idle speed is too high. The transmission is probably downshifting late to first. Get to someone who knows about these things...nothing you should try to fix yourself....but first...do check to see if your transmission fluid level is right and the color is right.

Chevy cavalier jerks when stopping


Possible brake issue caused by warped rotor or sticking brake caliper. If it pulses when braking have the rotors turned or replace them. Would also replace the brake pads while you have it apart. Old pads should be the same thickness for both inboard and outboard pad. If one is thinner than the other it is an indication that the caliper is sticking or hanging up.

My 2008 dodge avenger jerks when i come to a stop any idea what it could be.?


Jerks coming to a stop as in engine jerks, or does it seem like the brakes are jerking. When you leave off the pedal does it stop jerking? If it does it is probably warped rotors. A lot of new cars have this problem, my theory is that the brake pads they are using are way too hard. They put way too much heat into the rotor and warp it. Of course the rotors are none too heavy either. I think it is all in an effort to reduce weight in the vehicle.

Hard to say without a visual inspection. Have them rechecked by the shop that did the install. You may need new rotors. The rotors may have been cut beyond discard allowance,

When I step on the brake it pushes back and jerks before coming to a complete stop. All fluids and ABS fuse checked. HELP! Trish from Maryland


Your brake rotors are warped. Which causes a high spot on the rotor, so when you apply the brakes, the pedal will pulsate. You'll need s new set of rotors.

When braking the Rendezvous jerks forward just before stopping completely. This is an intermitten problem, usually when first leaving for the day. Any suggustions? Thanks


I would have a brake tech at a reliable auto center check the abs (anti-lock brake system)
Do you have any lights on in your dash with the letters abs ?
I would have this checked out now. It is not safe to drive your vehicle if there are brake problems, no matter how " intermitten"
Please let me know what you find.
