when its idling its good, and when i rev up the engine while stationary, it revs up perfectly, the jerking starts when i start driving, it starts jerking and has no power, i have to give it extra acceleration to get somewhere, it does it in all gears.

    Cracked air intake hose between MAF & throttle body? Weak motor mounts allowing engine movement which opens up crack in hose causing intermittent 'leak' & misfire?????????............MY CAR JERKS , BUT THAT'S BECAUSE THERE'S AN IDIOT BEHIND THE WHEEL.
