Well if it is the starter would it cause the car to just cut off while driving when I come to a stop
The only thing the starter does, is crank the engine over when the engine fires up that's the end of it. It'll not cause to stall, make the engine run sloppy or what.
You need to confirm that the starter is turning over the engine-if its jerky could mean the starter overrunning clutch is slipping.
