Looks like labored gear shifting while accelerating. Feel jerks at speeds 40-60 mph.

Good morning,

I would suspect you have what is called a shutter from the torque converter. That is when the clutches slip in the converter and are slipping and that's what you feel.

I would start by changing the oil/filter in the transmission and use an additive for this shutter. If that resolves it, then that is confirmation of the torque converter. It is not a permanent fix as the torque converter would need to be replaced.
