what could make my car jerk while stepping on the brake and when i sterp on the gas lightly?
Lots of things, any lights on the dash?
Tom is right, lots of things but maybe your brakes are that bad and warped that you just need to replace them.....
Loose motor mounts would let the engine move around.
loose motor mounts/ tranny mounts would explain jerking while on the gas
