99 E320 jerks

My 99 E320 kind of jerks forward or seems to not have enough gas at lower gear when I start driving in the morning and gear shift seems not correct. I do warm the car up for about 3-4mins before driving. After I drive for sometime when I slow down or stop at traffic light, I dont see this problem. What could be causing this? Bad Oxygen senor? Or is it the transmission going bad and not shifting correctly?

I am not too worried about the other problems but worried about transi going bad. What are the typical symptoms of transmission going bad?

Thanks much in advance.

the first thing I would do is have the tranny fluid level checked after driving it around for a while, how many miles since the tranny fluid was changed? Also is the check engine light on-any codes?

Thanks palm tree and Misfit.
No check engine light on.
I had to change the conductor plate a month back as it was giving erroneous readings to the trany and and at that time new fluid was put in.
This car has 57k miles in it.
