2000 focus shake

we have a 2000 ford focus 4 dr with 120000 miles. when accelerating slowly the car jerks or lurches forward

feels like it is running low on fuel but not

we tried driving it with it not in overdrive and it didnt do it at all.

any input

Sounds like a fault with the torque converter.

I agree with Roadrunner.
