I had a problem like that with an olds cutlass i owned. It turned out to be the TCC (it is a solenoid which locks the torq converter to give you "fourth gear") Fortunately, the solution was simple: just unplug it. I don't know about your olds, but on mine it was a plastic plug that went into the top of the transmission. You just pull the plug, and it is fixed. The plug will have a tab or some other safety device which prevents you from accidentially pulling it. It will be easy to figure out, though. If that doesen't fix the problem, plug it back in.
The only drawback is that you will no longer have overdrive, thus lessining your gas milage.
or, you could pay thousands to have the tranny removed and rebuilt.

best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

Sometimes (not all the time and only recently) upon acceleration (from dead stop and/or from any speed but give enuf gas for it to kick down into overdrive), car jerks and acts like it doesn't want to go...


There is some loose conduct in the connection from the engine delta coil side which is connected to spark plug.Tat part is having some loose connection which makes the car to **** and stop when you accelerate.
