Hello and Thank you for choosing Just Answer.
It does sound like the torque converter may be engaging and disengaging making the jerking sensation you are feeling.

If it is the torque converter does that need to be replaced or is it something that can be fixed withiut replacement
The torque converter needs to be replaced as a unit. You may want to look into fist having the computer checked for Diagnostic Trouble Codes or DTC's. This could better help pinpoint the problem.
