When the car is normally warmed up when I accelerate between 20 /30 mph it bangs slight jerk. And when I come to a stop it does it.
Do you
have the same problem?

If it bangs on down shift most likely you have a bad valve body that is very common on those transmissions.

I was thinking it could be the mounts there are times where I literally feel it lift up.

Now we are getting some good information. It does sound like the mounts are bad. There are two main mounts on that car the one by the coolant bottle the upper engine mount and the one on the top of the transmission. They hold up the weight of the engine and transmission so they take a beating. As far as the too engine mount goes you can get a aftermarket mount without the big bracket. You can transfer over that big bracket from your old mount. That will save you a lot of money right there. I would check out those mounts.

Those are the two top main ones. There is one under the car I would check also.

There is also a mount inside the sub frame, but is difficult to change.
