2005 nissan altima - jerks once engine is hot

2005 nissan altima, - you can be driving the car down the road and once the car gets warm, the car jerks it almost feels like the transmission jerking, but once the car jerks and you stop and you start to take off the car is really sluggish acting and the service engine light came on when it did the whole jerking thing. And it said it was the speed and crank sensor but we have replaced both and reset the codes but car is still doing the same thing.

I just had the same problem with my '02 altima SE.
Took it to Buckeye Nissan in Hilliard OH. and they had to replace the two crank sensors which.
The sensors themselves were about $44.00 a piece, but w/labor about $300.00 was the total. Hope this helps.....Now if I can just get the heater working!

2005 Nissan Altima jerks while driving, stops jerking when in neutral.


That usually happens if you're in too high a gear. If it also seems to accelerate slowly, you may have a fouled plug or other cause of a dead cylinder.

2005 Nissan Altima jerks on Drive or Reverse for a second when hot.


Check for loss engine motor mounts and transmission mount
Also check the air tube (TOP AND BOTTOM) for hairline crack.

A loss motor mount can cause excessive vibration and damage the air inlet tube.

Car jerks on freeway and engine shuts off.


It sounds like your Mass Air Flow Sensor is faulty. These sensors will normal show fault when cruising at highway speeds causing the vehicle to almost stall or stall. Replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor with a known good one and test drive the vehicle. This will most likely repair your concern.
