Hi Kai. When a vehicle receives an inconsistent or unbalanced flow of air and fuel, it will not run properly. and typically causes the "jerking" sensation. Several components of the fuel or air intake system could cause this jerking or surging sensation to happen. Some of the most common causes of this issue include a mass air flow sensor, an engine vacuum leak, or a failing fuel pump. In most cases, when the engine won’t start after shutting off, the fuel pump is the root issue. It’s probably best to have a professional mechanic complete an on-site inspection - so they can determine what is causing the root issue and the right repairs can be completed.
