Welcome to the forum.

OK, not sure if you know what the other codes are but 303 is mis-fire in cylinder #3 and 551 is a fault with the power steering. Don't think that last one has anything to do with the jerking on acceleration.

Follow thru with your plans on some new plug wires and it just might end your problem with the jerking.

Are you taking off the negative battery cable for 5 minutes to clear any old codes?
