i stopped at a steep hill, waiting for a gate to open. when i i gave it gas, my car went reverse a little bit then i felt a jerk, and when it started moving forward, it continued to jerk back and forth going uphill then the "service engine light" came on. now it jerks back and forth on flat surface most noticeable on lower gears and revers, less on park and high gears. I would highly appreciate any advice and help. Thank you.

Just will not fire up ??

It jerks when I'm driving it and when I step on the gas, it revs up it the speed doesn't change. And at a stop light or a turn or backing up, it sometimes dies. It doesn't do it all of the time but it's getting worse. Please help!

drier and expansion valve and recharging system

Costing me more time and money and will need car towed to mechanic - do I pay this same mechanic again? The "fix" lasted only 3 weeks, exactly same problem, charged me $200. Should I demand fix with no additional charge to me or at least no labor charge? Should I switch mechanics?

I changed upstream o2 censor,camshft censor,pcv valve.Im changing the alternator belts soon because it also squeels sometimes too.

Car not running when put on computer check it say OC1 oxinator and Alternator not working.

mechanic said the car wouldn't start then the next day he tried to start it and it ran I drove the car home and it ran fine the next day I got in to start it and it would start later on the day I tried again and it started went down the road about a mile and it died friend came to look at it and the car started up fine again drove it to his house and when I was going to leave the car wouldn't start again I keep having to disconnect the battery to clear the codes then the car will dry for a minute but after the brain learns the the car I have the same problem

For some reason, most times that I accelerate and when my foot comes off of the accelerator, i can hear a slight ringing sound similar to the sound of an empty metal bowl. What could be causing this and how much would it cost te repair it (roughly)? Thanks!

I've been wanting to change it but I'm having trouble finding it. It's not directly under the vehicle so I think it might be behind the panel of the driver side. I have no idea where it is or how to get to it

I've replaced the belt & Alternator and after a day or two it's rain it will start up squalling its will get worse like if I get ready to stop it will squill at night when I start the car up.
