E200 Auto 1997 model, jerks when the gear shifts automatically.
It happened only once few days ago and now its fine. I was driving along and each time you pressed the accelerator, and the gear went up a notch I got a ****, even when I came o a stop, suddenly there would be a shake, probably when the gear came down a notch.
Sorry if my explanation is a bit Non Technical, I am not a mechanic.

It looks like you need to overhaul your tranny, perhaps change the filters only or worst, the solenoid.Since its happening only once a while, perhaps a transmission oil change may solve the problem, but ultimately I believe you'll still have to replace those clogged up filters in your gearbox

check the level of the transmission fluid while the engine is running. also has the transmission been "flushed"? a lot of shops just use dextron atf with the additives supplied by the supplier of the flushing machine. this can cause problems in toyotas. replacing the fluid with the correct (T IV) transmission fluid may help. but if you are having this much trouble it may be too late.
I am not saying this is the solution or this is the problem but the PT cruiser suffer from code P0344 Which is the cam position sensor which causes misfire, the solution is a reflash of the ECM.But before a reflash the Camshaft postion sensor needs to be verified for working condition and if possible duplicated.Once the Check Engine light does come on you automatically go to limp home mode, This is the drag that you experience,the purpose is to protect the catalytic,in case there was a true condition with intermittent cam postion sensor,You need the check engine light code, then you can go from there.
not sure if this is the answer yet but i have the same problem with the same codes i work at an auto parts store and a few of the techs that are customers have lead me in the direction of changing the ignition switch, i am doing it today will let you know if it solves the problem
more than likely you will need a valve body rebuild. you are probably looking around $500+. don't let them try to sell you a transmission. you could search ebay and see if you can find a "rebuilt valve body" but make sure it is for a '00 to '02 SL2
mine does too on a 1997 dodge ram 5.9l automatic tranny from first to second it is jerking and jumping and then finally shifts into second i just had the tranny rebuilt probably 20 miles ago so as soon as you figure out the problem let me know asap my number is 2282432853
