Change the fluid. Audi will swear that they can't change it and that its a "lifetime" fluid. But lets say that your transmission goes out at 75k. Then the lifetime of that fluid was 75k. Don't listen to them. I changed my fluid and my shifting and everything smoothed right out.

Car is very jerky

What kind of car? Without much detail it's really hard to diagnose this. Make, Model, Year, and a description of when it's jerky would help (braking, accelerating, coasting, etc.) Are there any other symptoms/sounds related to the jerkyness? Could be anything from a bad spark plug to a bad transmission to a out of balance tire.

When driving my van at 55 to 65 mph for 25 miles or so, then come to a stop my van wants to die . then i put it in park start it then put it in drive, it wants to die.

It sounds like you might have a sticking Torque Converter Lock-up Soleniod. It will act like you have a manual transmission and forgot to push the clutch in. (Jerky - jerky then dies) It is not real hard to change. The hard part is getting the side cover off of the transmission.

My 2002 Buick Century is jerking when it shifts gears. It is a automatic. Why is it jetking when it shifts?

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.

Transmission gets jerky like it can't decide whether to shift or not When shifting down manually the jerky diminishes

Try spraying all the linkages & or cable at throttle linkage & at side of transmission with WD-40 or similar, to get things loosened up, then give a coat of white lithium grease or similar spray to keep it lubed up.
Engine off, wheels blocked etc.when you go under eh? safety first.
That may be all you need, if not get back to us.

1998 F250 2wd transmishion or rearend problem

Sounds like the transmission is starting to fail. If you get the jerky response when making a sharp left or right turn upon acceleration that is a sign that the clutch packs inside the auto tranny are slipping and grabbing intermittently. If the truck has pulled a trailer a lot in it's earlier days you can almost bet the tranny is the problem. Smell the tranny fluid to see if it smells burned. The burnt smell indicates slipping and excess heat.
