If I accelerate from a dead stop the truck sometimes has a jerky response. Or

(2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac)
in Dayton, NV on April 24, 2013
if I take my foot off the gas its jerky again. Then recently I've had several instances where the truck seems to rev at a higher RPM and the temperature gage goes above the hot mark and my oil temp light comes on. I pull the car over, turn it off the temp immediately drops. I pull back onto road and it drives just fine. What on earth could be causing this? 88,000 miles on the odometer.
