If your car jerks while you are coming to a stop it might mean that your breaks ar getting weasted.
If your car is jerking when you come to a stop could mean you have warped brake rotors or a malfunctioning abs unit. It could be you're not taking it out of or to a low enough gear if the vehicle has a manual transmission. There could be a problem in your automatic transmission electronics system; especially a defective speed sensor.
why is my car jerking
There are a couple of reasons why you car is jerking when you are going below 60. It could be the result of a problem with your transmission, or your fuel pump could be going.
If a 2002 Jetta is jerking violently on sharp turns, stop driving the car immediately. This could be a problem with a tie rod, the A frame, or ball joints. Driving the car with this condition could lead to the tire falling off.
When the car is coming to a stop, it is decelerating--or it has negative acceleration.
Maybe your car sucks.
the fuel filter or carburetor might be plugged, really need to know when it jerks be it accelerating or stopping.
A good woman.
Check brakes for seized caliper causing the pulling & this may have warped a rotor causing the jerking. Rule of thumb is if it pulls left on braking then the right brake is sticking
no because your car can die or the transmission might slip. you can have a clogged Fuel Injectors , your fuel filter can be dirty and need to be replaced. In so rare cases if your car is jerking to hard it can resulted in a bad transmission.
If by "stop the engine", you mean turn the car off, then the answer is NO!
There may be something wrong with your tires, go to a car shop and let them look at them
its probably just you jerking yourself
