okay, I've been noticing this more and more.  Cruising along, the car 
surges a little; letting up completely on the pedal causes violent 
jerking in most gears, which the car has done almost every day of the 
3 years I've owned it, and I've finally had it.  I want to get rid of 
that damn jerking.

My first inclination was the idle position switch, but I would think 
the ECU would store a fault if the switch said "hey, I'm at idle!" 
while the potentiometer said "full steam ahead!"  Check engine bulb 
is installed, and functions properly; I've accidentally caused fault 
codes :)  I suppose it's possible both sensors are bad, but then that 
would certainly(?) generate a code...
