Jeep is jerking

When driving in 1st and 2nd at low rpms my jeep is bucking/jerking forward continuously til i put more pressure on the gas. My mom told me I probably need to change my fuel filter. I don't know what it is. Anyone know what is happening?

the nag1 transmissions are very senisitive to water and the earlier ones had an issue with water getting in that caused clutch chatter/slipping .THere may even be a tsb on that in here http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_tsb.htm
I woulch check your transmission fluid .

Tell your jeep that it might go blind. Sorry I couldn't resist. Check MAF also.

LOL on the comment . but no MAF sensors on any of the wk gas engines . MAP sensors only . they tend to fail differently .
