Check you spark plug wires, spark plug, and distributor cap and rotor. Make sure the spark plugs are gapped correctly and they do not look worn or fouled. Find a relatively dark place, start the engine, raise the hood, and look for blue arcs (sparks). A little windex sprayed on the wires will enhance this effect. If you see these sparks, replace the wires, and your problem should go away.

Engine sputters when accelerating then feels like its gonna stall ut i pull over and put in park then go again and its ok? sometimes it jerks really bad, what can be the problem?

Check that the vacuum line for the transmission has been hooked up properly. Stay on the mechanics back until he can tell you exactly what the fault is as it happened after the reconditioned box was fitted. and it is his responsibility to fix what he did wrong.

1986 f150 4x4 5.0 manual runs and ides fine but when you accelerate and shift gears it jerks and sputters

I am curious to know what the scan told you when you originally checked it? A lot of people spend way more money than they should changing parts and guessing at the fix. Tell me a little more about the what the scan results.

My 1999 jeep grand cherokee is making a loud clunking sound when I accelerate and then starts sputtering/jerking until I reach about 70mph

the bad news is that when that noise starts is either 3 things
1. your rod bearing has slipped and is about to break
2. you have a stuck lifter
3. finally you may be just low on oil

You have to describe the malfunction better. What exactly does it do,and when(in gear or coasting?) or accelerating?
A steady jerking can be a driveshaft loose or u-joints about to let loose. don-ohio (:^)
