It sounds like you're describing what an automatic transmission does when it downshifts and then upshifts. If the "lurch" isn't hard, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Is this a manual or an automatic? If it's an automatic it's running in 4th gear permanantly this will have very high rpms (because there is very little torque being applied it would be very slow building momentum) Try regular drive.If it's a manual you may need to have the transmission looked at If 4th needs to be retooled it can be done reasonably cheap.

Try putting some dry gas in the gas tank...it could be water in the fuel...if not it could be dirty injectors or a fuel pump..

Try changing not just the fuel filter but flush the transmission change the transmission filter and fluid. A good shop won't charge much more then about 75.00 to 100.00 for it and I recommend you have it done especially if high mileage on that car.No 1 rule is even transmission fluid wears and it should be replaced every 3 to 5 yrs. Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way it almost sounds like your transmission is shuddering and worn fluids will cause that.Be sure if higher then 100,000 kms to have transmission flushed but don't forget the gas filter and change it once a yr.
