Ford Fusion Jerking

   RSS

Topic starter

I have a 2020 Ford Fusion with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (not turbocharged). It has about 45,000 miles. It has developed a jerking feeling when I try to maintain speed. It is very noticeable at slow speeds, like trying to maintain between 30-40mph. When the jerk happens, the RPM gauge goes up a little and back down. It only happens while driving, never at a stop or while in park. Any ideas what is causing it?

are there codes to read if the check engine light is not on?

Yes, there can be codes without the check engine light turning on. You need to scan the car for codes and it would also be helpful if you could take a snapshot of live data while the problem is occurring.

Get it scanned for codes at an auto parts store and go from there.  Could be the engine or the trans or both.

This is probably a dumb question: are there codes to read if the check engine light is not on? None of the dashboard warnings/notifications are on.
