|Question: my car jerks or sort of pulls when I accelarate and it's not the brakes.
also my front driver's side signal light doesn't work I changed the fuse. - posted by 10.0.0.7 Reply
|Hi- When a car pulls, that could be a sign that the air pressure in the two front tires is different. Check the air pressure in your tires to be sure they are properly and equally inflated. If that is not the problem, you need to take your car to a mechanic. Jerking is often a sign of transmission, carburetor, or fuel injection problem. Regarding the signal light, first try changing the bulb. If that isn't the issue, use an ohm meter between the fuse block and the light itself. Resistance should be very low with the turn signal on. If it is very high, the wire is bad. If not, you have a different type of electrical problem. - posted by Mary G. White

|When a car jerks during acceleration, that often indicates that there is a transmission issue or that part of the fuel injection system or carburetor is clogged. The first things to try are changing the transmission filter and running fuel injector cleaner through your gas tank. - posted by Mary G. White
