so it jerks as you start from a stop? your clutch might be slipping.

to test if your clutch is slipping... cruise at 45 mph in 5TH GEAR, and keep your eye on the tach and speedo. while you're watching the tach and speedo, floor it QUICKLY. if you see the tachs rise before the mph's... then your clutch is slipping and should be replaced asap.

go test and let me know
