I wouldn't worry about it unless you see this happening regularly over a period of time. If you got a bad batch of gas, or something along those lines, it could've caused it to happen. If it hasn't happened again, and you have no check-engine light and your fuel economy is where it usually is, I'd chalk it up to a random occurrence and not worry about it. If it starts happening more, try and note as many things as you can about the situation (ie, how long it sat, how much gas in the tank, is the engine warm or cold at startup, any recent maintenance or repairs, etc) - all of that can help a diagnosis.

SOURCE: Car stutters at startup

My car did the same thing and I went and had it checked out. They had to replace my mass air flow censor. Cost me a little over $200. The only thing is after I had it fixed, my check engine light kept coming on. They said that my fuel line was running rich because I had ran my car so long with that problem. May want to get that checked out!

I have a nissan maxima 04 and when I switch the gears from park to drive before I can even push on the gas some times the whole car jerks then rides smooth till the next time I switch back into drive it...


ill assume only occurrs when drive train is warmed up...cold ok?shift valves sticking in valve body and a very common problem with these vehicles equipped with 5 speed auto trans.check fluid color.brown is normal on these units....black is bad.if its still brown and not black replace the valve body to eliminate this concern.its alittle pricey but about a third of the cost of transaxle replacement.

Engine jerks at 1900 rpm


It sounds like either a fuel restriction or clogged CAT. What have you run for tests so far. Were any repairs or maintenance performed prior to this issue.
