I would check the fluid. Sometimes the shops don't fill them all the way back up. The reason why it is trying to go and jerks, is because when the fluid is low the transmission don't engage all the way and then when it jerks it is the clutches in the automatic transmission locking up. 99 times out of 100 they just didn't put enough fluid back in. The way you check it is start the car, put the car in neutral set the emergency brake and then go check the fluid. If the fluid is dark like oil, you need to notify the shop that changed it immediately. When you run it low it burns the clutches and turns the fluid black. The fluid should be a pinkish red.

The transmission filter is stopped up. Change it and add some new fluid and "trans x" conditioner and hope for the beat. Otherwise you need a transmission.

It's worth a try, but it sounds like some internal transmission problems. Check the color of the fliud and see if there is a burnt smell to the fluid.
