Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue
The transmission has been making a grinding sound and seems to pull when I am on the brakes. It has been shifting hard also. Recently, it has started shuddering like it is out of gas, but it's not. Then today, I stopped at a red light and the tranmission wanted to keep on pulling. I put it in neutral for a minute, and when I put it back in drive, it died. I tried starting it back up, and every time I did, when I put it in gear, it died. After about ten minutes, it started I was able to drive it out of the road. About thirty minutes later, I had some one check it, and it started up and drove with only the earlier issues (grinding, etc.) So what is wrong?
Put in gear and stalls,,, The lock up torque converter is staying engaged. take it to auto zone and have them disconnect the plug for the torque. You will no longer have over-drive until you change the sensor,but will get you by for the time being.
Hard shift / shudder, check fluid level and colour, if full and red in colour have the trans flushed and replace trans filter.
If dark coloured you can try the flush, but to save you money, have auto zone install another transmission.

Your grinding issue is your brake pads are gone, the vibration could be caused by your brake rotors being warped. I would start here, replace your pads, possibly your calipers, and your rotors. This will get rid of your grinding and jerking sound. After this I would see if your surging problem still exists. I would bet it will not.
