Something to do with the transmission. Probably slipping It's the force of momentum being exerted on the car, the chassis of the car doesn't quite "catch up" with the engine itself without a transfer of momentum, or "jerk".

If the automatic transmission car jerks when accelerating and the dash does not indicate a gear, there is a problem with the transmission. Check the shift solenoid.

It is because the car is accelerating from zero miles per hour to a faster speed so you feel pushed backwards.

have your transmission checked sometimes torque converter clutch isn t locking or unlocking properly

Sounds like a broken or loose suspension component on your driving wheels. This could be deadly. Better take it in to a professional -------- now.

For a car accelerating on the road, the direction of friction will be the same as of the car.

noise and jolting is present whilst car is idolling and accelerating

No. The car is not accelerating if at constant velocity. Acceleration is the change in velocity with time.

You know that a car is accelerating because you will be pulled in a direction opposite the force that is accelerating the car. This is Newton's Third Law: "For every force, there is an equal and opposite force".

your car might be weak on accelerating because it isn't firing on all cylinders.

With a fuel pump problem, the car may seem to shudder or make jerking movements while accelerating. This is commonly misdiagnosed as a dirty fuel filter or "bad" gas in the tank. What's really happening is that the fuel pump is wearing out and at high speeds is unable to provide steady fuel pressure to the engine, causing it to misfire.

The velocity of the car in this case is changing (to specify velocity, you indicate a speed and a direction), therefore the car is accelerating.The velocity of the car in this case is changing (to specify velocity, you indicate a speed and a direction), therefore the car is accelerating.The velocity of the car in this case is changing (to specify velocity, you indicate a speed and a direction), therefore the car is accelerating.The velocity of the car in this case is changing (to specify velocity, you indicate a speed and a direction), therefore the car is accelerating.

My car is accelerating at 10 miles per hour per hour.

There are a number of reasons why your car may be making a whirring sound when accelerating. You may have a lose part for example.

a small evap leak would not cause your car to jerk.

Bad speed sensors can cause the car to hesitate when accelerating at speeds below 20 mph. The blockage of the air filters can also cause the car to hesitate when accelerating at speeds below 20 mph.

Noun: The jerk of the car sent the groceries everywhere. Verb: That door sticks, you have to jerk it open.

Yes, it is accelerating into a different velocity (i.e. direction)

The Maxximus G-Force can do 0-60mph in 2.134 seconds. which is At the moment the fastest accelerating road-legal car!

Usually when a car makes squealing sound after accelerating with the heater on, the serpentine belt is a little loose. It likely needs adjusting by a professional.
