Sounds like you've got one motor which is beginning to fail or your joystick gimbal is out of alignment. A bad joystick gimbal will give a joystick out of neutral fault at start-up. A weak motor will give you the sympton you describe. A bad or non-freewheeling caster will give a similar symptom.

2007 dodge caliber. started jerking especially going uphill. service engine light stays on although no codes show up. any clues?

read the fault codes to determine what put the engine light on
regardless there will be codes and it just takes an experienced technician with the right connections to read them
next check the cat converter as it may be failed and blocking the exhaust system

How will I know if 1 of the engin mountings broke or collapsed

If the car only swerves briefly it is probably an engine mounting but if the car keeps steering to one side with constant power, the problem could be suspension related.

Another sign of a faulty engine mounting is when the car vibrates from side to side under a certain constant power load, usually very low power like on a slight downhill. Accelerating ******* an uneven road surface with faulty engine mountings can result in a "stop-and-jump" feeling of the vehicle.

The best way might be to open the bonnet and with the brakes applied. let someone put power on first gear and next, on reverse. Check how much the engine moves. The engine should never pull to one side, but only upwards or downwards. In your case, the car pulled to the right when the engine braked the wheels. That means the engine will pull to the right of the car when the power is applied in reverse, if the engine mounting is faulty.

Car jerks going uphill

Maybe! Check your air filter, also go by auto zone, or O'Reilly Auto Parts, have them to check the engine code, it's free! Could be a bad oxygen flow sensor, or other sensor causing this! and you really need to fix that leak. hope this helps!

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual

best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph
