WHEN I PUT MY CAR IN DRIVE IT JERKS?

2006 Chevrolet Malibu • 60,000 miles

I start my car everything fine, but when I shift it to D it jerk alitte hard, I opened the hood to see and when I put in D the motor moves, and when I start driving and the first gear kicks in it jerks the same way, only in first gear. Second kicks in smooth. They told me it could be a sensor.

Could be too high of fluid pressue inside the transmission. Do you have any codes in the computer?I have also seen bad inlet air temp sensor connectors cause that.

The codes that apper are, P0113, P0102, P0315. The p0102 I think I know what it is theirs a hose on the right hand side of the motor, and air is escaping but I dont know the name of the hose. Thank you for your time.

What size engine do you have?Post a pic of the hose so I can see it.

I doubt a vaccuum leak is causing the inlet air temp sensor circuit high voltage. Also would cause the P0315 crank sensor not learned.

The motor is 3.5 the line i'm talking about is complety broken, on the right side, its a line that has a green knob that you can screw off, the line goes all the way downlike were the cat is.

Looks like the canister purge solenoid nipple broke off. No a vacuum leak isnt going to cause your P0102.

Thank u for evreything, I fixed the problem it was the 2 wieres that were disconected on the plug on the temperture air sensor, the car works fine now, but the check engine still on they told me I had to reset the computer, for it to shut off. Can't I just disconnect the battery.
