Q: Car stalling, hesistating, and jerking.

asked by on January 07, 2016

Car sometimes stalls while driving. Sometimes it will not start. When driving, it hesitates and jerks.

This sounds like a fuel pump issue of low fuel pressure conditions or the fuel filter is clogged causing low flow. I recommend you have the system checked by a qualified mechanic.
