Question about Cars & Trucks
Putting your foot in the gas? Is it opening the throttle a little or kicking up to 2000 +rpm's? Opening a litlle would be clean the throttle body, idle air control motor, and the mas air flow sensor. If you go to 200+ rpm's do a compression check. Yuo would have a dead cylinder. Or several. Blown head gasket?

wires from the horn run down the steering column and pass the area where the shift linkage is also in the column. its either a loose wire, or a chafted wire inside the column. Be VERY careful working on this if you have airbags. they must be disarmed before you work on the column.

SOURCE: Jerking/jumping while driving
An automobile's ignition system may work fine while idling but fail during acceleration. Problem areas to be inspected include the spark plugs, spark plug wires and vacuum hoses. Car owners should look for spark plugs that are covered in oil or sediment or damaged, spark plug wires that have damaged insulation, and vacuum hoses that are unplugged or leaking. Fuel Problems
While most acceleration problems are likely caused by problems with the plugs, wires or fuel, a variety of sensors and other components can cause similar problems. a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ) will cause causes transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on takeoff, and surging while going down highway.
good-day ! check and or clean maf sensor if need be. you can by the maf sensor cleaner at most auto parts stores.

hmmm. it sounds like either your motor mount or transmission mounts are bad. check for rips in the rubber and have a friend hold the brake while shifting it from park to reverse etc
