Where are you mate? Maybe somebody's local and can have a look? Sort of sounds to me like there's something loose in teh ignition.

is your check engine light on?

when you say jerky jerky... do you mean at low throttle it's almost like its not getting enough gas?

Could be IAC or TPS

Take off your coolant cap... then start the car up. Watch to see if any bubbles start to pop up at the entrance...
