Hello

my 93 GT jerks down the road really bad to where it is almost undrivable. one funny thing that i noticed was that when i unplugged the voltage regulator and took it for a spin, the car ran better than ever. but by unplugging the regulator the battery is not getting a charge. when i plug the regulator back in i get the same jerking. the wiring harness for alternator has been changed.

has anybody seen this before? am i missing something here?
