Why does my 2007 Suzuki XL7 has "jerking" sensation between 30-50 MPH?

How many miles since a tune-up? Could just be dirty gas? Try adding a bottle or 2 of injector cleaner through the gas tank...I like the Lucas Oil brand...about $3.88 at Walmart...Hope this helps.

1995 jeep grand cherokee laredo jerking at 50 mph

which engine? (asked now 1000 times, only 2 ever answered)

tune up time, spark parts, rotor to plugs. filters. both.

its called a 60k mile tune up solves most.

my guess, is its misfiring or

is this the ASD relay dropping out then back in, as driven.

jerked before and after CKP sensor, did you know its the last thing to fail......

see the list of ASD drops.

misfiring, can be felt, its like a misfiring chain saw, ever here a 2 stoke misfire, ratta, tata ,tat?

some call it jerking, its not, is misfiring. (3reasons ) and 25 causes.

but jerkin real, like if you cut the ignition that is and instant bog.

but if you off the key and back on , fast, that be a jerk

that is total power loss. not misfire. its loss spark and fuel.

and jerks hard.

so does loss of 12vdc to the EFI system.

so the first step is to see if its the ASD relay dropping out.

on all jeeps.. 93 to now.


automatic, shut down. (relay and EFI logic)

key point, the ASD will kill the engine, if fit sees spark is bad.

so its a chicken and egg deal.

here is the logic.

key on , crank , ASD closes, fuel injects and engine starts

then dies in seconds. or runs full time.

note that if the ECU sees spark dead, it cuts spark.

Sounds odd , huh. but is NOT.

this relay stops all car fires. (caused by this protection not in place)

Drain and refill with fresh gas. Check fuel and air filters. Clean and re-gap spark plug.

Thank you for your time. i was driving a 2006 dodge stratus on highway going 75 mph. When i came upon slow down sign to 50 mph. i held the coast button down until it reached about 55 mph. and then the car...

If the fuel pump worked before you unplugged the computer, I would expect it to work when you reconnected everything.
Are there any trouble codes stored in the computer ? Do you have power to the coil ?
It could be the coil or the computer, or something else.

Go 2 a Ford dealer parts dept. Ask 4 a bottle of: Motorcraft Additive Friction Modifier. STINKS REAL BAD!!!! Usually used in differentials but will lubercate transmission if added into trans fluid tube and vehicle driven shifting thru the gears to get mixture worked into all parts. If this doesn't work you might need tp drop the pan from the tranny & replace the filter and the fluid, if so have pan ready to catch fluid when u break loose 1 side! Jiffy lube can do this & power flush the tranny, if required. Otherwise mechanical problem for tranny repair shop.

In car Heating

When engine is cold, remove rad cap & have a look at coolant level, as well as your return bottle. If you have to add to your rad level, make sure you have engine running & the heater on (not defrost) when your adding, and let engine get up to normal operating temperature & let rad fan come on & off 2 or 3 times before you top up last time & then put rad cap back on. If coolant is low in rad & return bottle has lots in it, you may want to replace rad cap in case it's faulty.

Engine Back fired, blew out muffler.

Sounds like you may have gotten some debris in your exhaust pipe or something was clogging your muffler. Maybe the innerds of you Catalytic Coverter went and got stuck or the innerds of your muffler gave out. That would be the only few things I could think of to cause something like that.

Losing power up one particular long hill

If there are no lights or ECU codes, esp the water temp sensor, then the usual remedies are to use injector cleaner, and clean the throttle body, check for water in the fuel filter (and the fuel tank). Make sure the engine oil level is full, and so on. I assume a hill outside Sydney doesn't get enough altitude to be an issue, unlike a hill outside of say Denver, CO that goes up near 10,000ft above sea level where you should expect a significant power loss.
