Issues With the Fuel Injector System, Spark Plugs, or Transmission
A car’s engine is not only responsible for propelling you; it also has to push against the air to get up hills or move at high speed. As your vehicle accelerates, engine power is transferred to your wheels via belts and pulleys. The more power you have, the faster your vehicle will go. If these components are not working together seamlessly, it can cause your car to shake while accelerating.
There are a few possible reasons why your car jerks while accelerating and ways to fix it:
The most common reason for a car jerk while accelerating is that one or more of your spark plugs may be going bad, which will lessen performance if the problem persists. If you think this might be the case, have a professional check them and replace them if necessary.
Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with your fuel injector system. This could be caused by a clogged fuel filter or a faulty oxygen sensor. Both of these issues can cause your car to run less efficiently, which can lead to shaking while accelerating. If you suspect that your fuel injector system is the problem, it is best to bring it to a mechanic for diagnosis and repair.
Finally, a car may jerk while accelerating if something is wrong with the transmission. It’s usually less common than other issues, but you still need to be aware of that. If your car is jerking and you suspect the transmission, it’s important to get to a mechanic as soon as possible so they can take a look and fix the problem before it gets worse.
