Hi, my car is jumping when I accelerate too fast. The check engine light isn't on, and I just got my front and rear shocks replaced last week. It doesn't jump every time I accelerate, just when I do so too quickly. I haven't noticed any noise or smell when it does it either. What does this mean?

This happens when the engine starts to misfire. I would do a full tune up with a throttle body service. here are two guides to help you fix the problem:

Check out the images (below). Please let us know what happens.
