Kangaroo acceleration!

can anyone help???
when i'm accelerating, and the revs are up to say 3000 if i then pull off the gas a little it jerks like it's hit a dead spot or something.... its more noticeable in second.... i've used an engine flush, new plugs,leads,dist cap and rotor arm...it's not a serious problem( i hope ) but it's realy annoying( it looks like a learner driver using stick shift).
any help needed!!!!

i had the same problem. after i put in a poly tranny mount it seemed to be better, i dunno if that fixed it or just dampned the symptoms of the actual problem.

He's talking about the motor and trans mounts. The bushings are poly. I need some real bad, I have no bushing on one side, ouch.
