2001 Mercury Grand Marquis Question: Acceleration problems

When I lightly press the gas pedal at 30-60 mph my mercury will shake and shutter slightly as if it is not getting a good flow of fuel or some plug or wire is bad. It is a jerking feeling. Anyone with advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks -
Answer 1
Coil on plug type ignition system with a misfire, scanner will show problem cylinder(s) so it's best to have it checked by a mechanic.. -

Comment 3
A/T problem?...... 9 possibilities , then random guessing would also 'up the ante'. -
