a weird jerking noise

whenever I come to a stop at a traffic light or stop sign, my van jerks. Is
it the back brakes, feul injectors, or what???

Stacie... bless you, but please find a friend or acquaintance that knows a
little about cars and might describe it a little more in detail.


You dont even give us enough to start asking questions.

Re: a weird jerking noise

My 92 e150 does the same thing. You get a kick a half second after it
reaches a full stop; like your towing something with a sloppy trailer hitch
and it bumps you after you stop. At first I thought it might be motor/trans
mounts or rear leaf spring, but now I think it's the transmission doing
something weird, like kicking the lock-up in for a fraction of a second..
I'm so used to it I don't think about it anymore.

Maybe it's your masturbator.

"Kicking in the lock up"? Now I know it's definitely the masturbator.
Swell group, kids.
