Possibly bad motor and or transmission mounts, if when the car is running you can see the motor rocking back and forth excessively that is definately your problem.

Hi my name is Don while drive in my car it's fine until I cut Da ac on then it starts jerking like it have bad gas like Da plugs in there bad I done got egr lines new coals an New plugs it stop for about 2...

Hello, Don with da a/c on...
Although "jerking" doesn't rhyme with "plugs," I think I understand your question.
Depending on what kind of car it is (you didn't say), there is likely either an air bypass or an Idle Air Controller, which is designed to maintain the idle under the load of the a/c compressor. If the air bypass or IAC is not functioning correctly, the idle will be allowed to fall below specification, making the car idle rough because the idle is too low.
Check to be sure that your air bypass or IAC is working properly.

I drive a 95 pathfinder. When I am driving and push on the brake to lower my speed, or even stop at a stoplight it will die, not all the time does this happen but it is very scary when it does. Sometimes...

it sounds like a tps or tbs. it a throttle position (body) sensor. it a plug that will be on or near the intake, have you had any work done to it lately?

Jerking when gas is pushed or in idle

It has been my experience with nissan that from your description, the EGR valve is bad."exaust gas recurculater" However it also may have a fuel filter issue due to perhaps water in fuel, trash,etc. If the engine operates correctly once you get it past the "shaky"area then the chances of the EGR valve being bad are better.
Hope this helps.....Good Luck!
