2002 Honda Accord - slow engine start and jerking

When I start the car, the engine starts idling very slowly, then starts jerking. The car will eventually stabilise but when you engage the gear, jerking starts all over. Sometimes even when it allows you drive, the jerking can start in motion. The CHECK light has remained on for some time. The local dealer here in Owerri, South East Nigeria flushed the injector system and changed the spark plugs but the problem still persits.

Most likely a dirty idle speed control system follow the guidelines below to clean it.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

SOURCE: where is the tcu in a 2002 honda accord

it is the Transmission Control Unit. you have to find the reason why the TCU is flashing the D4 fault code. not replace the unit. have your vehicle scanned for another code. your transmission or transaxle is giving you a warning that something is wrong .

SOURCE: 2002 Honda Accord. Engine does slow start and jerks

sounds like you have a problem with the spark the coil may be on its way out or there may be oil in the spark plug holls shorting out the spark.
your best bet is to pull the leads out 1 at a time and and look down and check for oil if there is oil there get a new rocker cover gasket.
if no oil refit plug leads loosely and start the car remove one lead at a time slowly and look at the spark cumming out the end off the lead is it blue? if so it is ok if it is yellow and dull you have a coil problem. also check that the spark is only comming out the end of the lead as it may be comming ou the side of the lead and shorting to earth,
you can do this by slowly moving the lead around the top of the sparkl plug holl and see were the spark is comming from

be carfull no to shock your self as it herts like hell

good luck

Gear hits and jerks when being engaged especially when engaging in the reverse


It sounds like a delayed shift issue, does the engine idle speed sound or feel like it is to high? That can cause this issue.

Honda element 03. Normally starts up at 1,000 rpm in park and shifts into drive smoothly. Sometimes starts up b/w 1.5 and 2k rpm at idle and JERKS into drive or reverse.Solutions?


Cars not control choke themselves electronically, this is likely the car trying to warm itself up quickly. The jerking will occurs anytime you shift into gear at an RPM over a low idle as the torque converter is being engaged. If the high idle last more than a couple of minutes then you might have an issue.

2004 ford focus will not go in gear manual transmission


with engine shut OFF, try putting it in any gear. While leaving it in a gear, press the clutch all the way and turn the key to start ( do NOT hold key to start, but just for a moment). If the car jerks forward while starter is engaged, you have a clutch problem. If the engine turns over freely, you have a shifting linkage issue.

My car is a 2002 Volkswagon Passat. Just of recent, it jerks when I engage the gear from park!!


Check your transmission fluid level on the transmission dip stick while the engine is running. When fluid is low it results in a snatching at gears especially when engaging 'drive'. Add the correct fluid (check with VW on the correct type for your specific car) via the dip stick tube. Do not fill beyond the maximum. If you do not correct this the constant snatching will eventually cause the splined end of the input shaft to shear off and this will be an expensive repair.

Good day, I drive a 2002 MK4 1.6 SR. The revs on the car are not stable especially when clutch is pressed in then the revs jump between 500 & 1000 for a couple of secs then eventually stabilise on...


Try cleaning the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve. Use CRC brand spray throttle valve cleaner, about half the car will do it. Spray it into the engine intake while it running hold the idle up or it will stall out. After you have done this the idle problems should improve.
