So, on Friday I took my car to a mechanic to see why my car was jerking while it was idling and while at slow speeds (below 10 mph). The mechanic said that it was the spark plugs and that the valve cover gasket needed tightened. He replaced four spark plugs and tightened the valve cover gasket and it seemed to fix the problem. I drove away with my car running perfectly fine. Later that evening, I was driving uphill and my car started jerking again, this time harder than before. Now, everytime I am driving uphill, between 45 and 50 mph, it jerks. I called the mechanic back and he said to bring it back in on Tuesday and they will look at it. Do you have any idea what is wrong? I feel like I am getting screwed over and I don't want to dish out any more money on something that won't work. Thanks!
have the same problem?
