What size engine? 2.4?... 2.7?... 3.5? each one has a different fuel delivery system. Was there a Check Engine Light when this happens? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

I have a 2000 Chev Cavalier...when the T/C light comes on which is supposed to be for traction the car rpm's will rev out like its out of gear then the car will jolt and the rpm's will drop and it will...

Well, when the light is on it means the traction control is off or not working. And yes an ABS wheel sensor could be involved, but I doubt a wheel sensor would cause the symptoms. The jolting part sounds like the transmission is going into neutral for a few seconds.
You should be able to have the abs checked for trouble codes.

Replace the throttle position sensor . The engine computer is switching the injectors on and off , hence the jolting effect . The throttle position sensor is giving false information to the computer . Replacing the throttle position sensor will probably solve your problem .

Yesterday, my 1998cavalier z24 gave me a drastic jolt when i started and lasted 3-4 seconds....i have had a few problems in the last two weeks with going from reverse-drive, gears got stuck especially when...

If it were a TPS or throttle position sensor, then a service engine soon light would go on if the TPS was bad or out of specifications.

Check the transmission oil level and if that's ok, have the transmission flushed and filled (about $100 or so) if it hasn't been done regularly every 30,000 mi.

If that doesn't solve the problem, then the transmission should be rebuilt or replaced with another with low miles that won't give you that jolt on start ups from a complete stop while in drive.

Good luck on this repair.

There is a small jolt when shifting from Park to reverse. What does this mean?

Is there a "clunk" noise that goes along with the "jolt" ?
It is either a loose or worn, mount, or you may have a drive train problem.
