My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
A jerking feel like this here can be an issue with an engine misfire and can be caused by a fault with one or more fuel injectors atomizing incorrectly needing cleaned or replaced or an issue with in some cases an engine coolant temp sensor sending an incorrect engine coolant temp signal.
These should be checked into to see if one of these is the cause here and if a fault is found the affected component will need replaced in most cases.
Thanks Pete
