I have a 1993 Saturn SL1 sedan manual transmission, it is a 4 cylinder and
I have had since 1993, and just recently I found that when I shift from
first to second gear, and second to third, etc. that the car kind of
jerks, as if it doesn't seem to have enough power to continue. It actually
jerks (sputter?) a bit after shifting, but I have found that if I step on
the clutch long enough, and slowly ease up on it, it doesn't do it as much.
It kinda freaks me out on the highway when I shift into 4th and the car
kinda jerks like that for a bit. I have thought that it might be the fuel
filter or air filter, but I supposedly had them changed at the automative
place, but afterwards it still went through the whole jerking routine upon
shifting. Any suggestions or ideas? It is possible that they didn't
actually change the fuel filter or air filter though . . .this IS puerto
Rico after all . . .

Your clutch is burned out causing it to slip and car to jerk back and forth. Fuel filter and air filter have nothing to do with it at all.
