Car chugs and jerks like crazy while cruising

Determine whether the jerking is engine or transmission related. One way to determine if it is the transmission lock up converter is acting erratically is to down shift out of OD. And see if jerking persist. If it goes away suspect transmission to have problems with torque converter or TCC solenoid . If it doesn't go away determine whether or not the engine sounds to be misfiring. If so vehicle may require a tune up. Many vehicles can be diagnosed for free at your local Auto Zone.

Periodically at idle chugs. When trying to rev for more RPMs it almost stalls and takes alot of chugging before it gets back up to proper RPMs in 1st gear.

This was a huge recall- lots of cars involved. Call a stealership and have them run the VIN # to see if you fall into the recall
