My car jerks going down the road its a 95 Buick century and it changes gears fine when I take off just stares jerking a few days ago


When you say it "jerks," this description could fit several actual symptoms. If by "jerks" you mean the engine misfires, it could be caused by the need for a major tune-up (including plug wires and distributor cap), or it could be a problem with fuel delivery, contaminated fuel, or defective components in the fuel system.
I assume the CHECK ENGINE light is on (and has probably been illuminated for some time now). Begin by doing a readout of the stored codes, and use the results to begin your diagnosis.
If by "jerks" you mean the transmission is slipping (engine revs but car slows down or doesn't accelerate), you have a transmission issue. If the transmission fluid and strainer/filter have not been replaced within the past 5 years or 50,000 miles, have a complete transmission service performed.
If by "jerks" you mean that the steering wheel wobbles or pulls, you have a problem with the front suspension.
If by "jerks" you mean that the car shudders or pulls when you apply the brakes, you need brake work.
I think I covered all of the "jerks." ;)

Jerking when accelerating


we cant drive car, so jerking is not clear to a non driver.

first off , ill guess there is no odd noises.
and that means jerking can be 2 things (sure more but)
engine jerks, does it only?
or transmission slips then stops slipping resulting in a jerk.

get it serviced, with persons that can drive and experience this live.

Was jerking when running for last yr. now will not run at all.....


Did you address the jerking issue or just keep driving with the jerking until it died?

The jerking and the fact that your car will not run at all now appears to be tied into the ignition system. (spark plugs, distributor cap, ignition coils, ignition wires, timing belt, etc)
