Many things can cause this. Well, not that many,. Check your trans fluid level first. If you are long time since the fluid was replaced, over 30,00 miles, I would have it flushed. If you can not get that done for any reason and the fluid level is low then just add some but do it when the engine has been running a while and add small amounts while checking the level till it gets to the right mark on the dipstick.
If it happens in between just 2 speeds and no others then you could have a sticking valve in the transmission. More money than anyone likes to spend usually.

Jerking accelerating


This may be normal but you can adjust your driving to reduce the impact. To speed up the warm up process of the catalytic converters, the power train computer holds first gear a little longer than normal. This causes your car to get higher in the rpm range than normal, at part throttle, which causes the hard shift. On your first drive, try NOT to accelerate while the car is in first gear--it won't take long for you to learn how far this is.

Running rough and jerking on acceleration


Depending on what kind of truck you have it may be the distributer. I have a 72 ford pk and same problem. Changed points and same problem. Changed distributer and fixed problem.

Rear end slipping?


Differentials are direct-drive devices -- they cannot slip.

This really sounds like erratic shifting taking place right at the shift point. Gentle acceleration is the trickiest shift for an automatic. When accelerating harder, the transmission shifts more abruptly, which is a much easier shift to complete.

97 yukon 4wd. Jerks and makes noise like its


Hi amberdawn_84

My 97 yukon did the same thing (I believe). The valve body in the transmisson wears out (design problem) and causes the transmission to shift really hard. My repair was about $500 (nondealer).
LOVE MY YUKON!
