1996 Ford Taurus Question: Transmission vacuum modulator

The car jerks when going into 2nd gear and just revs when trying to reach 3rd gear. Is this due to the vacuum modulator and where is this located?

    does not have one. it is electronically controlled. you have had an internal failure and the unit needs to come out and re built. sorry for the bad news.
