Hi sifus

I can feel the small jerking especially when cruising at low speed (40-60kmh). I have replaced cable plug and distributor, but problem persists. Can anyone suggest what should I do next? Spark plug is relatively new.

Fuel filter changed before?
I think changed 2 years ago.

For fuel pressure, you have to ask ur mechanic to check unless you have fuel pressure regulator and for the air flow , you can take out the maf sensor clean it with maf/ carb cleaner
So, maybe I need to install the fuel regulator. From what I know, usually fuel regulator installed to those high performance car where they want to set for more fuel for more performance, and no effect if installed on normal car (correct me if im wrong).

For the maf sensor, I dont have the cleaner, so better just bring to mechanic and let him clean it, so dont have to buy the bottle of the cleaner. I never see the maf sensor cleaned during servicing before.

I tried to look for CRC MAF Cleaner at Ace Hardware Bukit Jelutong last weekend, but they do not have it. Have some CRC Contact Cleaner, Degreaser, etc, but not MAF Cleaner. Is CRC MAF Cleaner is the only product that I can use to clean the MAF? Any others? Or maybe can only use pressurised air to remove dust?

MAF sensor quite fragile, so not too strong if use pressurized air

So far, what I did:
- replace plug cable
- replace fuel filter
- clean MAF using CRC MAF Cleaner
- replace distributor with half cut one

Now, the problem is; when I press the acceleration pedal abruptly, is will be bad jerking. After a few moment, it will be normal again. For example, going into SmartTag lane with gear 2, after the toll, start to accelerate, then jerking happened and back to normal after some time. If I want to avoid the jerking, need to accelerate/pick up speed very slowly, cannot be abruptly. Anyone has experienced this kind of problem? Maybe the halfcut distributor gives problem, but when I first installed it, no problem happened... :hmmmm::hmmmm::hmmmm:
