Having problems with your 2004 Oldsmobile Alero ?
The car jerks when accelerating and shifting gears
Could be in need of a simple tune up, might have some bad gas. Could be a problem with a sensor, is your service engine light on? If it's not on try to have it tested for codes at autozone or O'Reily's. If nothing shows up and a tune up if haven't done lately. Or if it continues after this tank of gas is gone, try replacing the fuel filter if fuel pressure a little low. They have a fuel pressure test kit at autozone the let me use it there at the store without a deposit, but if you want to take it home I think it was $100-$150 for a deposit on it. If none of this seems to be a problem you might need to look at checking your coil packs, and ICM. Could also be some kind of a vacuum leak maybe so keep your eye out for any bad hoses or any hoses not hooked up.
