Can a 1988 Pont 6000 torque conv cause jerky response?
I had 1988 pontiac 6000 LE tuned up...engine runs fine. The car still jerks and it feels like the engine is missing badly. If it is the torque converter and I have the troque converter disconnected, what does that entail and what are the long term effects other than lower gas mileage? Can a switch be put on it so that I can turn it on when I'm on the highway?

Sounds like you are loosing fuel pressure intermittently. Is there any damage to the fuel lines? Maybe the fuel pump is on its way out (loosing prime.) If you find this helpful, please rate, thank you.
first check to be sure the vavuum lines at the throttle body are in there correct places.
on the main pulley of your engine, the one on the crank shaft there will be a little notch on it. mark the notch with some chalk or a dab of white paint. then loosen the bolt that holds down the distributor until you can turn the distributor. turn the distributor a little bit, snug the bolt up and try it. once you have the car running you will need a timing lite to set the timing to the correct timing mark. which should be 8 degrees before top dead center for you car.
