Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello Everyone

201,000 MILES

I have recently Bought a 1998 Honda Accord Ex v6 From My Local Title Pawn. Bought
the car and it needed a motor. So I had that installed and etc and added proper fluid
and made sure everything was good before I start it up and drive it. Afterwards I had a
chance to drive the , Engine Light  on already, No D4 light blinking. Took off in car on
my back dirt road.....car changed 1st gear good and it hesitated in going to 2nd ( Car
will idle high and go into gear) then 3rd gear car will be like i shifted it into neutral....it
just blink and then a hard change.....got the car up to 40 mph on dirt road. Took it for a
spin on the high way ( NO Busy Traffic) (At ALL) so i pulled off again.....shift 1st gear
but had little jerk and then the high idling and shifting like it didn't know what gear to go
into .....then all of a sudden its like i am in neutral car isnt or want to shift at all and
then it will fall face forward and have high idling and it slang's into  gear and threw me
back and forward. Then while I costed home slowed down speed to turn off,,,,,,car all
of a sudden AGAIN....like it falls face forward and then dont want accelerate into no
gear and then it idles high back and fwd from 1000-2500 and back dwn n up again and
then it Has a hard hard jerk and goes into gear and it jerks and jerks back and forward.

I checked the fluids it was full and good....No D4 Light it blinking at all on car dash
board. Also when i put car into rev it takes 405 seconds in order to catch or get signal
in which gear I am in and it jerks really hard into gear! And Also In Drive Also ....takes
a few seconds and goes into gear with hard jerk. And my brakes are kind of had
also.... Also my car has a High Idleing problem while in park I clearned throttle body
and the sensor underneath the throttle body....started it up it stopped and started back
