If this is an automatic, you need to change the transmission oil.

When this is old it gets sticky - and causes the problems you say.

If with new oil - it doesn't settle down - take it back and complain. It may be a more serious problem.

Please remember to return to rate this advice so others may benefit -or at least learn from it. Thanks.

Starts in a wrong gear (4th gear) and jerks before it go

Run fault codes and look for a faulty TCM unit. THE TCM will also put on the engine light and affect the speedometer operation . Running the fault codes will also identify the sensor associated with the ABS unit.. Seeing as to how you have just bought the car (possibly from a corner used car dealer) I would advise a pressure test done on the transmission to check for the condition of the transmission and have an oil change and the bands and clutch packs adjusted
