My car jerks when accelerating. It doesn't do it when I'm delicate with it though. At one point I pushed it a little bit and my check engine light turned on but turned off not long after. After the car warmed up on the highway; I tried pushing it again and the check engine light turned back on and now it's stuck on.
I put some fuel injection cleaner in but not sure if it's that.
My car has 77000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
