WHY DOES MY CAR START TO JERK WHEN I DRIVE IT.

  • 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix

It does it while im driving no matter if im driving in town or on the highway or even the interstate, it mostly does it when I go up hill but it will also do it while im driving on a flat straight road. It also does it when I accelerate to, it doesnt consistantly do it but it will do it a couple of times while im driving, I changed all the fluids but it still does it.

Can any one help me with this?
