Car jerks while accelerating.

My 2002 Honda Accord with 82500 miles on it jerks a bit when accelerating. Nothing happens to the speed but the rpm drops and then again increases and then the car picks up speed. What might be the problem ?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

what engine size is in your Accord? Any change in gas mileage? When was the last service?

by

The engine size is 2.3L 4Cyl., I haven't really looked at the gas mileage. The last service was done in May when the car had around 80K miles and now the car has around 82.5K miles.

Could be a knock sensor or a loss of air inside the air box/tube that goes to the intake manifold. I would have the check engine light checked; just because it isnt on doesn't mean there isn't a code in the system. Most of the errors would give you a check engine light, so it might just be a matter of time till it comes on.

My Subaru had a faulty knock sensor => loss of power when accelerating

Mazda had a break in air duct => loss of power when accelerating
