Default I have a 91 S-10 with a 5 speed transmission.?

After I go through all the gears and let off the gas a little it wants to jerk. I was wondering if the clutch might be going bad.

It is either that or the gas when you fill it up

Sounds like the U joints in the drive shaft are worn. Drive gentle and you can go a long ways.

Should be nothing to do with the clutch.

The best thing to do is get it up on jack stands and inspect the drive assembly. Get the largest channel lock pliers you can find and grab the drive shaft. Rotate it back and forth. There should be zero play in the U joints. There is one by the transmission and one at the differential. If there is play in either U joint, replace it. It is a very simple operation and really needs no explanation. If there is no play in the U joints, good. The jerking sensation you experience may just be that system is tighter than the automatic transmission vehicle you used to drive. That would be normal.
