CAR JERKS WHEN COASTING

When I take my foot off the gas, and the car is coasting it jerks. It seems even worse if I'm coasting down hill. I had something similar to this a few years ago, where the transmission was not shifting down when I came to a stop light, in fact it would end up killing the engine and I would have to restart it. But I just had this transmission completely rebuilt last summer. Thanks for any info you can give me.

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure first, then clean throttle plate on both sides and iac hole with choke cleaner.
