I'm having the very same problem with mine and have been told it's the catalytic converter that needs to be replaced. Apparently it becomes clogged and the oxygen can't flow through properly. I hope this will at least give you a lead of some sort. Another thing that was mentioned that I am looking into now is a 'map' sensor???? Good luck!!
Probably a bad head gasket.
Right behind the battery in the engin department... i had a similar problem
The bulb is falty, replace it and it should cure your problem.
There is a ground problem, either with the ground wire or in the socket.
could be the magnetic pick-up in your distributor, I replaced mine and it solved the problem.
Assuming it is screeching in the area of the belt and pulleys, my problem was that the belt tensioner had seized and needed to be replaced. Noise problem was solved.
Had that same problem on my 93 the tensioner wore out. had to have it replaced.
There are a couple of reasons why you car is jerking when you are going below 60. It could be the result of a problem with your transmission, or your fuel pump could be going.
Not sure if its the same design, but on my 1998 Continental the jerking was caused originally by a few of the individual coils going out. These are found on my vehicle right on the plug that attaches to the spark plug. That is, one sits right on top of each plug. Replacing these (about $65 each as I recall) was pretty simple. Of course, later on a similar jerking occurred which turned out to be the transmission. Ford replaced it. Hopefully, your problem stems only from the mini-ignition coils.
i had the same fault with my 1996 dodge Plymouth, 3.3 litre engine. i replaced the crankshaft sensor and viola problem was resolved.
You need to find out what is causing the jerking before replacing parts. A scan of the computer can reveal the problem and most auto parts store will do this for free.
If the pedal firms up after pumping a few times, its probably air in the lines. Bleed the brakes. If this does not solve the problem look for leaks and record your symptoms in detail to tell your mechanic and go see him soon!
Clicking inside the steering column on the 1998 Plymouth Voyager sounds like a steering pump problem. It could also be that the steering box needs to be replaced. This should be looked at by a reputable mechanic as soon as possible.
I just replaced my back engine mounts on my 2003 mitsh. lancer. It cost me $214 at a Mitsubishi dealership in Queens, NY. Unfortunately, I had to go to the dealership because no other auto store or shop had the parts. My engine & car was jumping/jerking whenever the car was in reverse or drive. Scary. After I got the back mounts on (because there's two - front and back). Now I have a stuttering/jerking problem but based on diagnostic test it's my coils that have to be replaced.. oh boy :)
If it is a transmission problem, the best thing you can do is have the transmission rebuilt. That will fix the problem and prevent any further damage to the transmission.
If the 1999 Suburban noise is a sort of loud banging noise, the problem could be that the engine have jumped time. Jumping time would cause the noise and jerking in the engine.
If your car behaves as if it's jerking, the problem could be a slippy transmission.
I had the same problem,it endedup being the spark plug wires
The power window regulator is defective. It is a plastic tape that can be easily replaced.
Check the hot wire coming from the distributor and coil to make sure it is not going to ground
You have a brake problem.
replaced ignition coil pack, PCM and spark plugs. No signal comes from the computer to fire plugs 2 and 3, but 1 and 4 are firing nicely. The van WILL NOT start, but -- at times -- it tries. Please help. There is possibility that I bought a faulty PCM with the same problem that I had from the original, but I dunno.
Run the A/C all the time until you get it fixed. It will run anytime the A/C is on. It has to be a defective thermal switch, or defective wiring, for the fan if the fan itself is good. I had the same problem and it was a simple $11 relay switch that solved the problem
Means that it probably needs a tune-up, take it in and let them put it on the engine machine to find the problem instead of throwing parts at the problem.
