jerking when accelerating is a transmission problem. Well, i am pretty sure it is. It could be other things but the transmission is where you should start. could be an ignition problem, if it is shuttering at low rpm. Mine does this and i have a cylinder 2 misfire. This could be plugs and wires or, getting more expensive, coil pack or distributer problems.
What kind of car is is? When it jerk while shutting off, do you turn the key off and it sits there chugging for a second before stopping?
your car must be stuck in a low gear and not able to switch out
Sounds like it could be a dirty fuel filter, try taking it off and cleaning it.
Usually, the driver putting more pressure on the accelerometer pedal. Or taking the foot off the brake. Or the car cresting a hill and heading downslope. Or some cargo or a trailer coming off.
Taking your foot off the accelerator.

What causes the dashboard light to stay on after your car has been turned off? 1994 Buick Century.
Your A/C compressor is shot. It's internal computer (or that of your car) is malfunctioning. The "jerk" is when your "A/C" kicks in...an A/C compressor takes much of your cars usable power. As it turns on and off you will get the hiss and jerk. (the hiss comes from the overworked compressor lines cooling)
in the car down on the gas
The AC is taking energy
car cuts off
Jeez!, Jolly, Jerk!, Jerk-off, Jackass!
you need to change the spark plugs it should stop
jerk off less... maybe wait 2 days, then jerk off and you will be like a jet stream...
You can inflat a tire on a car without taking the tire off by simply pressing the valve that is at the side of the tire that is used in pumping air in the tire.
I had a split in the rubber tube from the air filter to thr intake
Sounds like cam position sensor , when it starts going out it affects the timing causing the car to jerk and run badly
Sometimes frostbite, or by not cleaning it or taking care of it.
Torque is used when taking off or pulling a load. The more torque you have the faster the car will take off.
I have been given a courtesy car but I am having problems taking off the handbrake. It is an 02 car. What can I do?
it could be a number of things. my first guess would be brakes. when you say pull off, do you mean turn off to the side of the road/make a turn. or take off/accelerate from a stop
the definition of jerk is someone being a show off and being cool
any ford truck or sedan
That depends. A dealership will only buy a car that they can make money off of. I suggest taking the car to the delaership that it was made from. If you have a Chevrolet, like myself, you are better off taking the car to the Chevrolet dealership. The vehicle should be in the best shape possible to get the maximum profit.
