Re: my camaro jerks

Are you getting any trouble codes from the ECM, before the car cuts off or starts to jerk?

Re: my camaro jerks

Thank you for your responds. I think I have pulling foward jerks. It happens, especially when I hit the gas. A tachometer jerks too.

Re: my camaro jerks

It sounds like you might have a transmission problem (Trans mount) or a drivetrain problem. Check your U-joints and see if they are loose.

Re: my camaro jerks

check out the fuel filter back by the tank probably about a foot and a half from the tank toward the moter , if thats not it then pull the tank and check the strainer on the fuel pump , Also if those aren't your problem you should have your Mass air flow sensor checked and also your throttle possition sensor which is on the throttle body itself and has a three pronge plug its on the passengers side of the throttle body. Bad plugs , wires and distrbiutor cap will cause that too. Hope this helps

It sounds like a loose coil wire or a bad ground to me.
