This can happen due to few reasons. Check the spark plugs, any Air leaks on hoses, check the SICV -- Slow Idle Control Valve(if not move well,clean with the petrol),check the proper voltage and specially check the FPR--Fuel Pressure Regulator. If you check those areas,you can eliminate the problem.

== == == == == == == == just had this with a 99 3 series.. i changed the fuel filter and the sluggish jerking went away.. An air leak will also do this. Meaning that the car is sucking in air through so opening in the air tubes or intake system, check for loose fittings or puntured vacum hoses. If air is leaking in, the car will be stariving for gas so it jerks, sometimes it even revs up on it's own, and set check engine lights off. Hope I could help

How many calories can you burn running one kilometer?

The short answer is, it depends. The key factor affecting calories burned running a kilometer is your weight, with a lesser impacting factor of the speed, the greater your weight the more energy required for you to run a particular distance. A 150 pound person running a 3 minute kilometer will burn between 70 - 90 calories, where as a 200 pound person running a mile will burn 100 - 135 calories. Running speed does have a slight impact on the calories burned while running, but it's pretty negligible. If you are running to lose weight concentrate on covering the distance rather than your speed. Covering a greater distance has much higher impact on the running calories you burn rather than the speed you do it in.
