Q: What causes a jerk when accelerating forward?

There are a few things that may cause this situation. A broken engine mount may cause a jerk or clunk noise when the throttle is applied and sometimes you will feel a second clunk when the throttle is released.

The control arms of the suspension system have bushings made of rubber that may wear over time. This wear causes excessive movement of the wheel and may clunk or jerk with the application of the throttle. Worn control arm bushings may even be felt in the steering wheel.

If you need help with this issue, consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come to your home or office to diagnose the jerking you're experiencing upon acceleration and help you make the necessary repairs to your car.

Q: I recently changed out a bad coil pack that had been bad for a month. Literally today it got changed and shuts down while driving

Hello. The bad coil wouldn't have caused the crank sensor to fail. Crankshaft sensors are the most common failure on this engine so it should just be a coincidence. I would use a scan tool just to make sure that...
