If a 2001 Pontiac automatic Grand Prix starts jerking in gears is it time to change the transmission filter?

Follow your manufacturer's maintaince schedule. But usually you'll want to change your fluid and filter every year... more if you drive hard. While changing the fluid may help some of your symtoms, if it's bucking then you probably have transmission problems.

I had a problem with my 2000 where it seemed to jump into gear a bit. Ultimately, the fix was a new transmission solenoid. Expensive to put in, but better than a new tranny obviously.
