Jerky shifts with an automatic transmission is normally cause by the valvebody in your transmission sticking. You could try to change the transmission fluid and filter but I seriously doubt this will solve your problem. Please rate my answer.

2002 buick century sticks in park positon sometimes


Nest time you can not get it out of park take a look at the brake lights. If the brake lights are not illuminating than you possibly have a bad brake switch. The solenoid that holds the shift lever in park is released when the brake pedal is depressed. If the brake switch is not working the gear shift will not move.

Hard shifting into reverse with a 2002 buick century


The motor will shift around a bit when shifting gears on the motor. My first suspicion is that the transmission could use a flush and new fluid in it. This would be the most economical first step.
If the problem does not improve after a transmission flush, I would suggest having a reputable mechanic take a peak at the issue.

I would look for a fault in the ignition system such as a cracked spark plug. Might need a scope check to put your finger on the problem
