Hesitation, jerks, and a pissed off driver.
No idea what's going on. Took off into traffic from a fast food place, and
accidentally squealed the tires. Now what I have is a car that hesitates, and jerks
pretty bad. Idle is super rough. Going into motion I have to seriously hold the
clutch, get it to about 4-5k RPM, and let off the clutch quick. And then it takes a
while to even try to speed up. Help? Ideas? Opinions?
I seriously hate this car.
you may have broken a tranny,motor mount,which is causeing the engine,tranny to cock up and be causeing your problem.
Didn't think I'd lose 3 cylinders at once, which was the case. 3 out of the 4 cylinders were fouled out, and all four plug wires were incredibly bad. I guess it's the trouble you get when you buy a used car, especially from someone that can't change his own oil.
So I take it you fixed it.
i would recommend getting your coil packs tested to see if they were the culprits in this.
