Driving Like Crap

So my auto 5th gen is riding really rough. In park, after it's warmed up, my idle bounces from 800-1200. I've cleaned the IACV, FITV, throttle body, and egr, just for kicks. I'm gonna clean the egr port plugs and flush my radiator next. With the AC on, it will bounce very quickly between 900-950.

When in 4th gear, the car will jerk whenever I get off of the gas, then jerk again when I feather back onto it. I'll turn my car off and then back on, and the jerking will go away for a while.

Once in a while, the car will also do a similar jerk when I start moving from a stand still.

Lastly, when I hit a certain not so sweet spot around 30 miles an hour, even when I hold the throttle steady, the car will noticeably continuously jerk.

What are you thoughts, guys?

Dying automatic transmission? Just my guess.

Re: Driving Like Crap

Mine did the same thing. I changed the plugs and wires and all was fine.
