If your fluid levels are OK, could sound like a problem with the Torque Converter; also dissamble and check Trans Valve Body.

Ford Thunderbird 1994 A/C compressor

Not necessarily. The fact that the vehicle is jolting when the a/c compressor is turned on could be to the fact that the engine is designed to rev higher when the a/c is on. If the a/c works, then the compressor is working and it hasn't seized. If this is the case, you may have a bad motor mount. This is more likely if you feel the motor lurch when you jump on the gas pedal. Hope this clarifies your problem and Good Luck!
