Hi there. It sounds like your engine is misfiring. Check the spark plug and wires to see if they are firing. If the spark plugs are firing, then the fuel pump could have an issue or the injectors could be plugging up. If the fuel pump is good and the injectors are clean, then the engine could have a worn timing chain causing the camshaft timing to be off when the engine is loaded and floating. If you need further assistance with your engine jerking, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
