So does it feel like the transmission is slipping?Or the engine is cutting out?If the engine is cutting out I would check the spark plug wires first also the spark plugs. Make sure there isnt platnuim plugs in the engine. They carbon foul in those engines you want stock copper plugs I recomend the ngks like it came with. Also any codes in the computer?Have you checked for codes?Also is the jerking worse with the a/c on if the a/c works?
