It sounds like I have been having the same problem you have. It was the jerking problem and it would happen sparatically and then get worse and worse until I had to tow it. I stuck 1000 dollars into my car and realized that if I keep it over a 1/2 of a tank, it runs great. I think it is my fuel pump but not positive. Try keeping it completely full and it should hopefully work for you!
Good Luck let me know what happens!

Replacing the ignition coil has stopped the jerking problem. Maybe we're having two different problems expressed the same way?

Driving the car hard seems to help too. At least 4K RPM before shifting.
Guess I was too gentle of a driver.

i noticed recently that while driving my sunfire it will ocasionlly shift gears rather hard than usual so i talked to a guy from general motors and he suggested checking the trans fluid and if low to add transmedic so i did as suggested and right after i added that junk when i crank up the car the check emmisions light stays on and shifting to any gear from park jolts the car and it also made it start shifting harder what should i do

I have a 02 Sunfire and my airbag light has been on for a few months. I havent had the cash to take it into a shop to look at. Reading Haynes all they say is it could be the smallest thing causing this light but wont even tell you anything to check. just says to take it into a shop.
Can someone give me a few pointers on what I can check before I have to go into a shop?
