Sounds like clogged fuel injectors, run 2 bottles through in 5 gallons of gas and a bottle every fill up after that. Could also be fuel pressure regulator, cant check that without a pressure guage.

Two problems. 1. jag a noise when down shifting. 2. jerks when taking off

There is a special fluid additive that you have to add to the fluid in your transmission, simply drain one litre of fluid from the trans and add one litre of this special additive that the dealer will sell you and your problem will be solved.
