Hi, I realize this thread is older. I am having the same issues, jerking, hesitating, occasional stalling at lower RPM, but only in gear and driving, from second gear (5 speed standard) to 65MPH in 5th. It seemed like vapor lock at first (100 degrees) but then just does it even with the engine temperature and weather cool. I replaced the spark plugs and ignition wires. I am having a hard time finding the reed valves, to clean or replace (at the front of the air filter housing?) Also, could this possibly be a clogged fuel filter or fuel pump failing? Just curious what my next steps should be. Thanks for any help you can provide, I appreciate your time. :) P.S. It has a new timing belt, water pump, starter, coolant hoses, thermostat, not that this is relevant, just trying to supply information.
