My car began jerking at a light yesterday pretty

May want to run some fuel injection cleaner threw the gas tank also, here is a note from GM fuel injection cleaners...GM UPPER ENGINE AND FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER is the only injector cleaning agent approved for use with General Motors fuel system components. Other injector cleaners may cause damage to plastics, plated metals or bearings. General Motors has completed extensive laboratory testing of GM Upper Engine and Fuel Injector Cleaner, and can assure its compatibility with General Motors fuel system components.

Thank you very much
