jerky ride

So recently i've noticed that the acceleration and deceleration on my 86 325 has not been as smooth as it should be, i wanted to find out if these symptoms were normal or not. When im in second gear and i press the gas or let off the gas the car sort of jerks back and fourth, it also does that in 5th gear sometimes. Does that mean a worn out bearing somewhere?

I don't think it's the transmission, because I've been getting the same thing in my 86 325 automatic.

Check out the throttle switch, my car does the same thing. I was told that the throttle switch was the issue, check continuity in the sensor with the engine off.

does continuity mean it reads 0 on the meter?
