Is your instrument gauge cluster working properly? Especially your speedo and tach?

Yes, everything fine

Could it be bad cv joints?

No, They would make noise. They would have to be practically seized to make the transmission jerk. When you say jerking, do you mean that it revs up then slams into gear, like it's low on fluid? Or do you mean that it jerks several times when engaging a gear like first for example?

slams into gear when i go from p to r or from p to d4, also launches forward when i come to a stop.

I would try to replace the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) on the transmission first. If that doesn't cure it, you may have a bad shift solenoid. You will have to take it to a tranny shop.
