Hello! I am sorry to hear about your issues even post repair. When you say that the car is "jerking", please describe it? Is the car shuddering when you turn, for example, or when you accelerate? When you are stopping? Please provide me with more information so I can more precisely diagnose the possible causes. I will monitor your post for your reply! Best of Luck!

When I accelerate it's fine! When I stop at the light, thats when it starts to jerk a bit! It feels like someone's pushing me but the jerks are small and they stop when I press on the gas?

Drove to work, and I backed in my parking space at work, and noticed it was jerking more as I was backing in my parking space? Is it something to do with the starter or Alternator? Perhaps it;s the new spark plugs? Or is something clogged?

I had spark plugs replaced since the ones that were in the car were bad, and those were replaced this past Saturday, and then the camshaft and Catalytic Efficiency sensors were replaced, and also new air filters put in, so that was the basic Tune up. i used 89 and Engine Cleaner and put it in when the tank was Empty, and then filled it up with 89. I had a friend drive my car around so that he would listen to it. He told me it was the tranny. Guess it will be a very expensive fix up?

it's not the Tranny , must likely it needs an idle control valve or a new throttle cable then. take it to a good mechanic before you make msitakes that will cost u and u'll never get it fix . i don't know where u located ,look on google for a good mechanic in your area.
