Have the upper and lower intake manifold checked. It needs to be a cold start. 2000's are notorious for having the gaskets crack and leak. This may be causing the engine to idle rough at start-up ans somewhat disappear after warming. Winter starts can shake the steering wheel!
P.s. I had it fixed at 65,000 miles (warranty), and am having it fixed again at $120,000 miles.

I have a 1990 Buick LeSabre with the 3800 engine. Recently the engine
has began to miss under mild acceleration. It is not just a misfire
where the spark plug failed; it is more abrupt.
when the engine idles it almost always acts like it the engine is misfiring and it is like the engine is actually kicking back every nowand then. From inside the car while idling, I can feel the same phenomenon. I kicks!
I am not sure where all of the notorious sensors are located and I not feeling like they are at fault. The only one that I feel could be the culprit is TDC sensor or and anti knock device if it has one. Of course it could be the ignition module, I guess.
What I am thinking is that if this engine had an old fashion distributor, it would be as though a cylinder ignited out of sequence or before the piston reached the point that is near TDC. Could it be probable that the the module allowed the spark to set off another cylinder sporadically? Does this motor have an actual distributor cap? Could there be a short between some terminals?
It is not valves because for short periods of time the "miss" will vanish.
The check engine light is not on!

"Torque converter clutch" solenoid is stuck open which is causing your bucking problems. The solenoid is either disconnected or faulty. if you ran over something, it may have damaged the wiring, but if not, you need to take it in for checkup.
