    You say jerk a bit? how bad? is it down on power?
    Does it idle/ tickover ok? or slightly lumpy?

    Could be a leaking injector letting too much fuel through then bogging down under load.

    but could also be a slight missfire or a sensor.. better off getting it plugged onto a computer it will save a lot of hassle.
