I have had a similar problem. It sometimes tripped check engine light too. Check the wires that lead to the throttle speed control. A fractured wire caused sever jerking and lunging of the vehicle at various speeds.

You have bad motor or transmission mounts check it with someone stepping on the gas and the brake and have them put it in forward then reverse watch how much engine play there is or how far it travels back and forth if it's more than a half inch that’s your problem, if not post here and will give you the next procedure to check.

1992 lexus es 30 jerks when pulling off

does sound like a mounting type symptom i would get the engine and transmission mounting points checked ASAP as could be damaging the chassis,or even the mounting points on the engine/gearbox which could cost a fair amount to replace , the other possability is the drive shaft may have to much free play and at start of movement it could cause a jerk ,this again would need looking at very soon as could be causing damage to the drive train etc

The trans goes into gear but jerks

You could do a fluid change and change the filter. Sound like the valve body is getting a little loose and the fluid is getting passed the vales to quick and applying the clutches to fast and to hard.if you do a fluid change and it get worse put some STP engine treatment in the transmission and drive it. It is thick and it will tighten up the valve space even when it's hot.
