Well if its a 92 to 95 the transmission can make it jump.Almost feels like a fish on a line.My old 92 did that and according to the Ford dealership they said its an adjustment at the shifting linkage under the hood,now i cant be a witness to that because they worked on it not me.MAY NOT be anything wrong with your transmission at all,but with problem solving its good to be aware of as much as possible then do process of elimination..maybe someone else can also give hints as well.

I am having a p0340 and a p0344 code coming on and the check engine light is on. The car is maknig a jerking sensation when driving.Also, the car is not accelerating like it use to and the driving...

P0340 Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit
P0344 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent

You'll need to replace the Camshaft Position Sensor and might as well replace the crankshaft sensor as well. With these codes and the symptoms you describe this should clear the problem for you. Also check the wiring harness around both sensors to make sure there are no issues. Maje sure no insulation is cut or missing along the entire run of the associated wiring.
