SOURCE: car chugs and jerks like crazy while cruising

Determine whether the jerking is engine or transmission related. One way to determine if it is the transmission lock up converter is acting erratically is to down shift out of OD. And see if jerking persist. If it goes away suspect transmission to have problems with torque converter or TCC solenoid . If it doesn't go away determine whether or not the engine sounds to be misfiring. If so vehicle may require a tune up. Many vehicles can be diagnosed for free at your local Auto Zone.

you need to read the manual for the machine you are hooking to the vehicle .
These are errors not codes you need to understand how it works better.

Sometime car barely starts runs rough till rpm's build up


Check everywhere for air leaks. If it has a carburettor start the car and spray butane gas around it, if the revs increase then you have a leak somewhere as it is sucking in this extra fuel.

You may have a hole on your tank that at certain car position and how the tank is filled up your gas comes out of that hole. The gas may also coming out of the fixed holes of the tank such us the outlet for the fuel lines. You may want to check on that while inspecting the tank
