If you find yourself in a situation where your car is jerking when accelerating, it might be because there are some things wrong with the car, but it could also be that you are not using the best driving technique to avoid these jerks. Read this article to learn how to fix your car, and learn what are the most common reasons for your jerks while accelerating!
What Causes Jerky Acceleration?
Jerky acceleration is usually caused by bad engine mounts. This could be due to the mounts wearing out over time or it could be because of rust buildup. Either way, your car will need new engine mounts to fix the problem.
What is NVH?
NVH is the acronym for "noise, vibration, and harshness" which refers to vibrations caused by uneven surfaces. It is often associated with the engine, tires, or suspension. NVH can be reduced by using quieter materials in car parts or by improving the design of the suspension system.
How To Fix A Car That Jerks When Accelerating
Symptoms of a bad transmission include a car that jerks when accelerating. There are a few things that can cause this, including a bad torque converter, carbon buildup on the throttle body, or an incorrectly adjusted tire pressure. In order to fix it, you'll need to get the car's transmission fluid checked and replenished.
Can I Do it Myself?
Best Best get it fixed by a professional. The jerking you feel when accelerating is most likely caused by an issue with your transmission or engine. If you don't, the issue could cost more than $1,000 to repair.
What Else Could Affect Acceleration?
Acceleration problems can have several causes. The most common is a loose gas pedal, but there are other causes as well. Fuel injectors may be clogged or dirty, a vacuum leak might need to be repaired, or your vehicle's transmission system might have an internal issue that needs to be addressed.
Engine Oil Consumption
If you notice that your car jerks when accelerating, it may have an engine oil consumption problem.
