Car jerks when accelerating between 40 & 50 mph

Asked by Jan 05, 2016 at 01:21 PM about the 1996 Saturn S-Series 2 Dr SC2 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1996 Saturn SC2. Engine starts right up and idles smoothly. I think
plugs are OK. Car runs great between 0-40 mph and from about 50 mph on up
but the car jerks while eccelerating between about 40 - 50 mph.

Can you help diagnose?

Check the fuel filter, change if plugged, if problem is still present check for computer system codes, if none are found I suspect a failing fuel pump, or a TPS erratic readings.

My car used to do the same exact thing, I literally went to 5 mechanics. I changed my fuel pump, throttle sensors, O2 sensors, fuel filters, etc. Only to find out that it was my EGR Valve...goodluck!!!!!!
