JERKING ON ACCELERATION

1992 Honda Accord

Engine Performance problem
1992 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 156000 miles

I have a 92 Accord that drives great. It is a automatic however when I am accelerating I can tell there is a jerk when it is moving between 1st and 2nd gear and maybe even between 2nd and 3rd. Again it isan automatic but you can tell when a car is moving between gears. What could be the casue of this problem. Mechanically this seems to be the ONLY problem this Homda has once I get up to about 35 40 it is smooth sailing.

Inspect and test all the following listed below: Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
False air leakage.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard
