CAR PROBLEMS
Okay heres the thing every time I step on the gas the car starts jolting when its accelerating. I mean it feels like something tugs on it when I start stepping on it. I thought it was the air Intake filter. Maybe it was plugged or something but after cleaning it, it still does the same thing. Does anybody have any idea what this could be?? Also Ive been a member of this site for a while and my profile still puts me as new member. How do I fix this so that it doesn't say that??

You can fix it by posting more.


Could be a number of problems...

Clogged fuel injectors, dirty/malfunctioning MAF sensor, dirty Air Filter, bad spark plugs...

And the list goes on.

Okay thats true. Alright I checked the spark plugs and they were good. I cleaned the Air Filter with an air hose and still didnt do any difference except that you can feel more power. But I dont know what you mean by "dirty/malfunctioning MAF sensor" And how would I know if my fuel injectors are clogged? I mean what do I check for? Ive had my car for like 6 months already and man is it a bitch to just do any kind of work on it. I mean its lowered so I cant get under it. And it has all those plastic covers everywhere. Damn I swear that thing aint easy.

Go and get some injector cleaner from pep boy or advanced and run it through as the directions on the bottle say. The MAF is your Mass Air Flow sensor. If it's dirty/clogged/not there, then it'll make your car do all sorts of weird shit. There should be a post on here on how to clean it, search for it.
