The jerking sounds like the ignition system is breaking down under load. If you're due for a tune up do that first. As for the fluid "disappearing" it's leaking. Park on clean pavement or put a large piece of cardboard under the transmission (about the middle of the vehicle). Let it stand overnight. Then, in the morning, look for wet spots. The transmission fluid may also be leaking from the cooling lines at the radiator. Look for drips and wet spots there as well. As for the brake fluid this is very dangerous!! Look around all 4 wheels for wetness. Most likely a rubber hose, wheel cylinder, or caliper is leaking. This needs to be corrected immediately!! Without brake fluid you won't be able to stop your car and you'll crash!! Please have this looked at right away!! HTH. -Jim
