No it isn't normal. It sounds as if it could be worn constant velocity joints (the flexible joints between the drive shafts and the front wheels).

Are the 'jumps or tweaks' accompanied by a knocking sound? This is a classic symptom of worn CV joints.

Matt.

97 civic 5spd. Jumping while accelerating.


Just check the transmission fluid-if low you have to add until it is full-do not overfill though. Better to have it just a bit low than overfilling it.
In park, can you accelerate to 2500-3000 rpm, and hold steady with no shaking or indications of a miss? If it runs good in park or neutral, then you probably have transmission problems. Frankly, it is pretty rare for a torque converter to develop a problem. Check your fluid, or try changing the fluid if it is dark or dirty looking.

Turning sharply in parking lot vibration or rubbing feeling in the steering also in reverse on 2001 grande cherokee with quadra track 2


1st let me make sure I understand your Jeeps 4 wheel drive. I believe the quadra trac system is a full time 4 wheel drive, there is no 2 wheel drive setting, only a separate 4 Lo (for very slow speed). If this is correct, the problem is, the quadra trac system you have is supposed to compensate for any variations in wheel speed, whether it's driving in the snow, or cutting the wheels sharply to park on dry pavement. What u describe is typical behavior of a part time 4 wheel drive system. The problem is, your full time 4x4 should be compensating for this, and it's not. So, let me know if the above info about your 4wd is accurate (no part time 4wd setting, no 2wd setting, only full time 4wd and 4Lo setting. If it is, the system is not compensating for changes in the wheel slippage correctly.
