1998 Isuzu Rodeo

I had my transmission filter changed and fluid filled about 2 weeks ago due to a hard shift between 1st and 2nd gear. It fixed it immediatly, and it ran and drove excellent. However, a few days ago, it has started jerking at about 45 mph. The rpm's will go up and down rapidly, and I think I hear a clicking sound. It doesnt do it all the time, as sometimes it still runs, and drives, and shifts perfectly. It will also, die occasionally at an idle, but starts back up immediatly, but I '2 foot' it to keep it running. What could possibly be the problem?

Clean the throttle plate on both sides with choke cleaner and have it scanned for codes. A trans guy shol dlok at it as you may have a converter clutch either going out or the switch is kicing it in and out/
