Hyundai Getz 2002: Jerky acceleration

Asked by Peter Burnett

My 2002 Hyundai Getz manual has developed a slight jerk when you accelerate. What could this be?

It sounds like it is hesitating when you want to accelerate. It would worth checking the spark plugs and cleaning and resetting the gaps if needed, also clean the throttle body, and check for any vacuum leaks.
