  • Q:

    What does it act like when it is not working right. My acts like a dead spot when you step on it and it jerks when you step on it or pull a hill. I changed fuel filter and plugs. My check engine light does not come on.

      A bad TPS could be the cause of this issue. There may be a worn out spot on the TPS it could cause that jerking that you are feeling.
