What would cause your automatic car to sputter and jerk bad when accelerating in first gear but be okay once it gets to second?

Try a basic tune up. New spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor. When the vehicle is in first gear and you are accelerating, that is when the most load is on the engine. It sounds as though under a load, you are losing your spark because it is arcing out where it should not be.

It would depend on how you are using it. If you mean 'jerk' as in 'pull', then 'tug', 'yank', 'wrench' or 'jolt' may fit the bill. If you mean 'jerk' as slang to degrade a person, then 'scoundrel', 'villain', 'blackguard', 'bounder', or 'cad' could fit the bill. If you mean 'jerk' as in 'jerk off', then the word would be 'masturbate'.

With a fuel pump problem, the car may seem to shudder or make jerking movements while accelerating. This is commonly misdiagnosed as a dirty fuel filter or "bad" gas in the tank. What's really happening is that the fuel pump is wearing out and at high speeds is unable to provide steady fuel pressure to the engine, causing it to misfire.
