what year and do you have a 4l60e trans if so the trans might be going but firs check the u joints check all them the 4l60e is natoris for having the trans go
Could be as simple as a tune up.
My 2004 SRX V8 would jerk and sort of "hang up" when accelerating from a stop. It is an AWD. The dealership had to rebuild my transfer case. No more problems since.
I had a very similar problem with my 1996 Nissan truck. New plugs, wires, distributor and rotor only partly solved the problem. Then I replaced the O2 sensor and the probelm disappeared completely. Had 130K miles on the truck when replaced and the O2 sensor was shot.
Replace the fuel filter.
Clogged fuel filter.
I'd guess a broken motor mount. Releasing the gas pedal would change the rpm of the engine, so you may be feeling the motor shifting as a 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.
Yes, because a jerk is a jerk, they would be likely to like another jerk!
Could be spark in the motor, or the distributor and rotor need to be replaced.
4x4 will jerk when accel. especially while turning. It is alot of torque on all four wheels pulling at the same time. You should only accel slowly with 4x4 on, especially in 4x4 low.
I've got a better question, why is this question in the Chevy venture forum ?
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".
have your transmission checked sometimes torque converter clutch isn t locking or unlocking properly
If spark plugs didn't help also check or replace the TPS. "Throttle position sensor"
It is because the car is accelerating from zero miles per hour to a faster speed so you feel pushed backwards.
Most likely needs the front rotors turned or replaced.
Try a basic tune up. New spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor. When the vehicle is in first gear and you are accelerating, that is when the most load is on the engine. It sounds as though under a load, you are losing your spark because it is arcing out where it should not be.
Need to check these things with a spray bottle of water. Spray these parts one at a time while the engine is running and see if the engine changes are flutters. Distributor Cap, Plug wires. Coil. and spray were the wires hook to the spark plugs. What ever you are spraying when the engine changes, then that part needs replaced.
a small evap leak would not cause your car to jerk.
It would depend on how you are using it. If you mean 'jerk' as in 'pull', then 'tug', 'yank', 'wrench' or 'jolt' may fit the bill. If you mean 'jerk' as slang to degrade a person, then 'scoundrel', 'villain', 'blackguard', 'bounder', or 'cad' could fit the bill. If you mean 'jerk' as in 'jerk off', then the word would be 'masturbate'.
Sounds like a broken or loose suspension component on your driving wheels. This could be deadly. Better take it in to a professional -------- now.
Do you have the 5 speed manual version or the automatic? If it is the manual version then its just because you are letting out of the clutch too fast
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.
