SOURCE: i apply the gas it jerks or going u hill jerking

the next thing is to have the fuel preasure checked, not enough preasure will cause this. also you should have the computer scaned for codes, this is very helpful in finding the problem,may have a misfire or weak coil.start with these things and see what happens,a bad coil pack may be what you will find. hope this helps.

Have you considered that all you had to do, was replace the EGR Valve,
and make sure you got no ignition misfires or vacuum leaks?

Everything you did was unnecessary, and would not be part
of any diagnostic testing, witch you couldn't have done.

Wishing,Hoping,Pushing and Poking,that procedure brings
in 2.3 Billon Dollars, of unnecessary wasted parts each year!

My 1994 5-speed manual Pathfinder sputters and jerks when it's cold


Here are the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and/or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving

1997 dodge ram v6 manual jerking while driving


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Jerking/jumping while driving


An automobile's ignition system may work fine while idling but fail during acceleration. Problem areas to be inspected include the spark plugs, spark plug wires and vacuum hoses. Car owners should look for spark plugs that are covered in oil or sediment or damaged, spark plug wires that have damaged insulation, and vacuum hoses that are unplugged or leaking. Fuel Problems
  • The use of a fuel additive that contains both fuel injector cleaner and water remover can fix minor problems due to water in the gas and fuel injector clogs. A fuel pressure gauge can also be used to test the injection system to assure proper pressure.
While most acceleration problems are likely caused by problems with the plugs, wires or fuel, a variety of sensors and other components can cause similar problems. a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ) will cause causes transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on takeoff, and surging while going down highway.
good-day ! check and or clean maf sensor if need be. you can by the maf sensor cleaner at most auto parts stores.

This sounds like your fuel pump is failing or has a plugged filter. Check the filter by removing and blowing through it. If it doesn't blow through like straw with slight resistance, replace it. Let me know.

After replacing the fuel filter on my Mazda Etude, it stuggles to idle and jerkes when I eccelerate. I chose the MPV from your dropdown list as there is no Etudes to choose from


Make sure that you have put it on the right way around. ensure that if you removed the air cleaner to get to the filter ,that you refitted the wiring loom plug to the air flow meter,also that there are no splits in the rubber ducting that runs from air cleaner to throttle body.The latter is the most common cause of your fault.I hope this helps or get back with your further findings.Please remember to rate this answer.

1994 Metro Geo rough idling and lagging up hills


dunno if it'll fix it- but check your pcv valve - 5$ for a new one - also check your egr valve- should be able to move depress it with your finger- if not, carb cleaner is safe to use to clean it up- remove it and clean it. this should help the idle

2002 Honda Accord - slow engine start and jerking


Most likely a dirty idle speed control system follow the guidelines below to clean it.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.
