My 2001 Acura jerks after a certain speed or going up hill


Asked by Sep 16, 2014 at 11:01 PM about the 2001 Acura CL 3.2

Question type: General

so for a while now i noticed my car starts to jerk when I'm on the highway going higher
than 60 or if I'm going up a decent slope. at first i was for sure it was the cylinders so i
replaced half of them, didn't have enough money for all of them, and it was good for a
little while but started doing it again. later i noticed that when the car isn't moving it also
shakes. now my check engine light came on and i brang it to a shop and almost all of the
cylinders were misfired. does anyone else have troubles with their cars cylinders going
out fast?

When you say cylinders do you mean spark plugs?

It sounds like a bad coil pack.


No i mean the cylinders. On the reader it comes up as "cylinder 1 misfire, cylinder 3 misfire, etc." But would the coils cause them to misfire?
