    Trans, is it Automatic or manual? It sounds like the coil pack. Since you already replaced the plugs and wires.

    And just to clarify, what do you mean the car jerks when you hit the gas? I know it shakes... but is it just one time after you hit the pedal or does it keep trying to jerk.. or buck? Does it do it if you hit the pedal lightly .. or hard.. or both?
