Asked by May 18, 2015 at 01:05 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Impala Base

Question type: General

When I'm driving my car(not all the time) it'll start out driving smooth as a dream then out
of no where I don't know maybe how I hit the gas or what I'll get these little quick jerks as
I'm just driving along. It use to do it when it was between 25-30 miles but it seemed like it
wld go away when you went up in speed.. Now it does it no matter what. Like I said it's
strange cuz it doesn't do it all the time-I can drive it practically all day turn it off for a
couple of mins/hrs and it'll start up fine drive off fine then when you start to drive there it
goes. What's this mean?? Please help.

Check your mass air flow sensor. My 01 Chevy impala did the same thing and I bought a new sensor from Amazon and it runs like a champ now.
