So I figured out my clutch is not slipping but I still haven't fixed my car. It still lurches when driving down a street. I cruise and the rpms r at about 1300 and it will buck like I didn't give it enough gas or something, lose power, and then go backk to normal. Has anyone had any problems like this? It also does it sometimes when I let the clutch out but I know how to drive stick so I kno I'm doin it right. But the idle is ****** up right now and sometimes stalls at idle and my rpms hang a lot too when i push the gas. What could this be?

could be something as simple as a fuel filter or an IAC valve

Thank u guys so much! I was thinkin throttle position sensor. I will def b cleanin the iac and testin the throttle position sensor to see if its bad. If nothin improves ill prob jus replace the sensors no biggie. I already gave it a full tuneup a couple months ago so I'm prettie sure I'm good on that. Thanks again.

Mine jerks a bit if I run it below 1500 rpm, but nothing too bad.
