Default Motor Surge?

2001 PT Cruiser
When I am at the stop sign and then step on the gas to go, occasionally the motor surges or stalls and feels like the car is jerking like a transmission slipping.

It has gone away in the last couple of weeks, so I don't think it is the transmission.

Has anyone else had this same issue?

Check the Cam Sensor.

Will the cam sensor cause a code to come up?
