Normally I would say you have a basic cylinder miss. The engine is under the most load when the transmission shifts into lockup or overdrive.

@ 45 - 50 MPH, Car starts jerking when I dig into the gas. Engine light came on immediately after that happen. Also, in the morning, cold starts make the engine very jerky! what is the problem?

You will have to get the codes checked.This will tell you what could be causing the problem.Sounds like ignition problem.But without codes it hard telling exactly the problem.As far as the morning starts you might have to clean the throttle body.When you get the codes post back and I can help explain the code or codes and what you should do.Auto Zone will check them for free.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Engine surge at 45-55 mph on 2002 Silverado 5.3l engine

I would start looking for a vacuum leak. Check all the vacuum lines for cracks or breakage. Spray penetrating fluid on them until you hear the engine start to stumble then focus the spray on that area until you are able to pinpoint the location of the leak. Best of luck,my friend, Dana

Engine light on miss aceleracion wont go more then 50 mph

At 45 or 50 is the engine RPM normal? If its higher that it should be transmission could be slipping.
If the engine is misfiring at 45 or 50 it could be the spark plugs.
If its just holding back on power it could be catylitic convertor, or possibly fuel filter.

Engine Back fired, blew out muffler.

Sounds like you may have gotten some debris in your exhaust pipe or something was clogging your muffler. Maybe the innerds of you Catalytic Coverter went and got stuck or the innerds of your muffler gave out. That would be the only few things I could think of to cause something like that.
