Try having the ATF and transmission filter changed. If that doesn't help you probably have a failing "valve body" in the transmission.

Gearshift sticks..when placed in park its hard to shift it to drive..automatic trans..i turn wheel to sometimes unstick it...?

Keep your foot on the brake pedal when shifting out of park, as there is a switch there to prevent the accidental engagement of the transmission. Sometimes the switch sticks so you have to pump the brake pedal a few times, but always keep the pedal down when shifting out of park. If this does not help then the switch is probably bad.

Our 2004 Avalon has a very jerky shifting action. When we bought it the RPMs were running high and that was fixed but the shifting is not smooth.?

is the car cold when you observe this? -> common problem, especially between 2nd and 3rd gear.

However, when you drive moderately, the shifting can be noticeable..and sometimes feel like being jerked.. running synthetic transmission like mobil 1 may helped a bit..

Mountains are formed based on the shifting changes in our lithospheric plates. Our plates are moving all the time due to our Earth's active core. Sometimes one plate is pushed beneath another or sometimes the two plates are driven into each other forcing the ground upwards and forming mountains. England has no true mountains because of its location in relation to the Earth's plates.
