Q: Brake disk

asked by on

The car jerks a bit while in motion and while throttling, the vehicle finds it difficult to move with ease. Could that be cause?
My car has an automatic transmission.

This may be potentially several things ranging from a brake rotor that is hanging up to a fuel supply issue. Depending on the nature of how the car jerks, this could be many things. I would recommend having this looked at by a certified expert, such as one from YourMechanic. A mobile technician will be able to come to your home to diagnose the jerking symptom you’ve described and repair it as necessary.
