    At speeds of 30mph to 52mph there is an intermitent, slight loss with what feels like a slip of power or miss and the rpm's increase. This is sometimes curbed by easing off the accelerator and sometimes I have to turn the motor off and restart in neutral as I coast to be able to get full power back and the ability to accelerate. I have had the trans. checked and it is fine. I have no dash lights on indicating any other problem.

The only thing i will thing about is if you ever let the diesel go very low or empty, this will cause to get air trap in the fuel system and then it have to be bleed out,
if you have mechanical injector type it is easier to bleed, but if they are electric fuel injectors then some one has to give you a hand to see if there is any air,
also most of diesel vehicles come with a water separator than need to be service or drain like every 5000 miles to find that read your owners manual and see if there is one.

No what it sounds like is you did not purge all the air out of the filter when you replaced it or you did not drain the housing properly and has water in it still.Water collects in the bottom of the seperator and when you change the filter it gets into the system.

Car jerks sometimes while driving down the road also in the morning time acts like it wants to driving down the road.

Time to have the timing/tuning checked up. The fault is relative to a cold engine and can be due to poor fuel flow/delivery or poor electrics.
So the check up for replacement of suspected components like plug, filter, coil , HT wires fuel pressure must be made.

Driving down the road and staled

Is the car diesel or petrol?

If a diesel, you might check the diesel pump drive belt (at the right side of engine when looking at the engine from front of car). It's possible the teeth on the belt have stripped and put the pump timing out. An alternative may be a "stop solenoid" failure. The solenoid stops diesel getting to the injectors when the "ignition" is turned off and "stalls" the engine.

I don't know if the injector pump on a petrol engine has a similar setup as a diesel but it might be worth checking.
