If it idles fine and happens only when you place it in drive, it sounds like a Torque Converter Solenoid. To be certain, buy a cheap fault code reader... Aktion is good one that is easy to use. You will need the Haynes manual and look up any fault code in the chapter on Emissions. This will speed you on your way to fixing your car, Torque Converter Solenoids are usually easy to DIY. Just be clean around them, I used Simple Green to clean the whole area up before I removed the old one... an old toothbrush helps. You will need a thin metal spatula to pry off the old gasket. They are brittle and will break into pieces. Use a safety razor blade to cleanly scrape away any remnants. I used a series of interconnected straws to suck out any gasket debris from inside the holes in the transmission. A tissue placed between the straw and lips keeps you from drinking any transmission fluid. Be clean and the install will go fine.

It sounds like you might have a sticking Torque Converter Lock-up Soleniod. It will act like you have a manual transmission and forgot to push the clutch in. (Jerky - jerky then dies) It is not real hard to change. The hard part is getting the side cover off of the transmission.

First of all, If you recently bought gas from a place you've never been to before, drain out the old gas, and put in a fresh tank from somewhere you trust. You may have water in the tank. After that, if that doesn't solve the problem, or you trust the place you bought from, go ahead and check all your external gas filters. If that doesn't solve it, I think that's when you're right: It's either the fuel pump, or the fuel filter, and in modern vehicles, both are in the gas tank, and both are very difficult to get at.
