TOWNCAR 'HESITATES' AND JERKS WH

2001 Lincoln Town Car

Engine Performance problem
2001 Lincoln Town Car V8 Automatic

I'm using this message board because I don't know a thing about cars and my mechanic said there is nothing wrong with it. 2 days after having it checked out, the car wouldn't start. I notice this happens when I don't start it for a few days. After turning and turning the key, it eventually started. It starts up fine when it's warm. Then, while driving sometimes it hesitates. It feels like the car pulls back a little and I have to take my foot off the gas. It will hesitate and pull back again when I put my foot back on the gas and then eventually just stops and runs smoothly again. I'm not sure if the 2 problems have anything to do with each other but I figured I'd be thorough to hopefully get an answer. I'm not sure what to do since the mechanic hasn't found anything. I drive 2 hours to school and 2 hours back and really dont want to break down. Any and all help is appreciated!
