Any CEL's on the dashboard lighting up?

Nope, nothing. It starts up find runs fine. And it doesn't do it all the time. It's just at random, usually when I drive for a while. Kind of like a light jerking motion at 30-50.

Could it be the torque converter locking and unlocking its self? Any fluctuation in the RPM?

Actually I'm not sure on that, I'll find out tomorrow and let you know, I don't think there was but I'm not 100% sure.

Sounds trans related. I assume you have an automatic, lock out the O/D and see if it goes away.

Chet0459 is on the money, before you replace the air flow sensor, take it out, and clean it with a can of cleaner, they make one just for those sensors, you can find the cleaner at any, auto part store. hope this helps
