'94 Merc Gr Marquis GS, 65,900 miles
All Maintenance done on time and oil chgs every 2000-3000 mi since new. Ran great till last 100 miles. Car jerks quite violently at acceration, starting at about 25 MPH until over 60 MPH and especially uphill, although never going downhill. Slight miss in engine heard too. Had complete 60,000 scheduled maint done already, except fuel injection cleaning. Had the vaccum hoses cleaned and new fuel filter installed though. HELP! Told by mechanic $1500 for trans overhaul needed plus whatever's causing engine miss!
He based this 'remedy' on a test drive?
