Question Asked: check engine light
July 18, 2009, 01:49 AM
My check engine light went on recently and I began to notice that my car would jerk when accelerating from first to second gear. The jerk was less significant going from second to third gear(automatic transmission). I tightened my gas cap and initially fixed the problem, but not long after the light and the jerking returned. How do I check my transmission fluid level? Is it possible that I need to check my engine mount? Do I need to take my car in for a full diagnostics check? Is it possible that I need to check the performance of my gas cap?
