Why would your 1991 Mercury Sable jerk sometimes when you start to accelerate?

I have driven Sables for years and have found if you are moving at a slow speed, maybe decelerating, and begin to accelerate, sometimes the transmission downshifts with a very noticeable jerk and a thud sound. I put 200k miles on a '96 Sable with this happening and never had a problem requiring attention.

A key is needed to enter, lock, and unlock many Mercury Sable cars. A key is also needed to start the engine.

The most common cause for a 1996 Mercury Sable not starting is a dead battery. The second most common cause for the automobile not to start is a lack of fuel.
