engine jerks when starting out
Irregardless of whether the engine is warm or not, when I first accelerate on to the street the engine
bucks and jerks for several seconds and then smooths out. It will be fine until the engine is shut off,
like in a parking lot, and then restarted. It will do the buck/jerk thing again; then it's fine.
Sounds like either a IAC or an ignition coil pack. Do you have a check engine light on? if so, is it flashing?
Thanks for the reponse. No, the check engine light doesn't come on, or flash.
