Default Car Still Jerking while increasing speed and stopped???

Well guys my 08 PT(non turbo) is jerking at acceleration and while stopped still. This does not happen all the time while driving though, only an intermitted problem.

No Codes on the display(-d0ne-)

Wires, plugs, coil, MAP, PCV, Intake gaskets, #4 Fuel Injector have all been changed out.

Any idea's before I spend some $$$ at the mechanics.....

Fuel filter or fuel pump? And yeah, if it's like my '01 N/A, those items are INSIDE the fuel tank. =total pain in the ***.

My 06 Tubo started doing the same thing last week and and then it worsened and the Malfunction light came on. I've just got it back from the shop and they had to replace the camshaft sensor.

EGlideRider,

Did you have the engine light come on? Did it show the P0340 fault code? It should have.

Guess I will try to change the camshaft sensor and the IAC???

Hopefully this will clear it up.

Others in threads are having the same issue and have do this.
