Why is my car jerking and shutting off while slowing down?
I have a 2008 Chevy Malibu Ls with 60k miles on it. I noticed last week that it starting jerking a little while accelerating and kind of sluggish. Yesterday it started jerking while i slowed down at a stop sign. At another stop sign it jerked harder and the engine shut off. The car cranks back up like nothing is wrong. I noticed it only shuts off if it jerks real hard. I got the car used 5 months ago so I dont really know what kind of maintainence was done on it..
Also, I added some STP gas treatment with a full tank of Exxon gas, the car hasnt stalled since but still jerks quite a bit when accelerating and when making stops..
