My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
If this engine is a gasoline engine with spark plugs the jerking can be caused by a faulty spark plug wire or spark plug itself as these are common for this issue.If it does not have a gasoline engine this can be one or more fuel injectors causing this.These will need checked to pinpoint which is at fault and from there repaired.
Thanks Pete

Hey Pete
After no reply from you guys I went to another mechanic, sorry but I needed a resolution
He found a split in the induction hose between the air box and throttle body. Taped it up and all good
I have a new hose on order
