1998 Chevy Malibu stalling Sign In

I'm having trouble with my 98 Chevy Malibu 4 cylinder. I'm going to do the best I can to explain but excuse my lack of car knowledge and terminology. When I start the car up everything is fine; the problem starts when I press the gas and let go, the car starts to jerk as if I'm pressing the gas and letting go repeatedly. When I press the brake after all of that, the car stalls sometimes. What does this mean?

Check engine light on? If so, have it scanned and write down the code number(s).

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

Just changed subject line to say "1998" not "1988" as approach will matter, Tom
