Helo my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

When you say the car is Jerking, does it feel like it is Engine related or Transmission Related?

Engine feels like misfire but iknow misfire does it all times,this only when you drive like for 20 minutes

Thank you for that description. A bad distributor would act like that. After it warms up it can cause the car to run ruff.

Before we go after the distributor ( which is fairly common ) what brand spark plugs do you have in the engine?
