Default Re: Jerking motion

Rcknrich- did you get this straightened out? If so, what was the issue? My truck has started doing something similar, only not so much "jerking" as much as a single jerk when accelerating from a stop. Was yours similar??

I'm almost certain my problem is CV joint or rear diff related.

My "jerking motion" normally goes away when the wife is around.

I have had my engine staggering down the road. I got a 41 and 141 code on my scanner. It points to a gas oxygen sensor. I would like to ohm it out or replace if ness. but I haven't found it yet. If someone can tell me where it is I will be delighted. I replaced the fuel filter today before I scanned it.
