No More Jerking on Stop and Go

My 1998 Lexus LS 400 with 70,000 miles ran 8 oz of Auto-Rx® in transmission for 1500 miles. I have had this intermittent jerk on takeoff from standstill since I bought the car with 30,000 miles. Well, well, I just finished doing a backyard flush this evening, refilled with Toyota Type IV ATF, drove it around to get fluid hot so I could get proper amount of ATF in tranny. Overfilled (why do I always overfill????) and had to suck a little out. Guess what. So far, I’ve had 20 or so stop-and-goes with no jerking. Hmmmm… I get confused when stuff I buy actually does what it is supposed to.
