SOURCE: Nissan Sentra jerks in 3rd and 4th

the engine light IS on. I will definately check out the fluid in the trans. How much on average does a trans flush cost? Thank you very much for your help. I am currently riding my bike as much as possible till I find a solution, plus gas prices haha.

2008 Tundra jerks on acceleration (seems to be foot pressure on accelerator pedal) over bumps, I have to be careful taking off or remove my foot from accelerator with dips


You need to have the electronic engine control computer scanned for codes, I'm 68 years old and still drive super powerful Dodge HEMI car and still get on it like the dickens, but that said go to any autozone parts store and ask them to run an OBD2 fault code test.

you could be getting clutch slip. to test for this park front wheels in front of a curb. then try to climb the curb. if it just spins and not climb them the clutch will need replacing. should climb easy up the curb. this is just a test don't put foot down to get up the curb.if engine stals just try again but engine staling is a good sign.

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

When slowing down the transmission feels as if it is jerking in to the next gear.


after checking fluid level is correct, try this, to see if it improves...
into drive,let car accelerate without any gas(do not touch pedal)to max speed (about 30/35mph).stop,then with 1/3rd gas pedal,accelerate to max speed(do not move foot)stop,then foot hard to floor,upto about 60mph,then stop.then only using a max of 1/3rd gas pedal,drive for about 15miles.you have just reset the drivetrain computer setings....the car is fitted with a computer controlled fuzzy logic gearbox,it will try to make you drive as eco as poss,but if used harshly the gearchange can be harsh up and down.....
if driven gently 4th will engage at 43 mph,with a slight clunk.

the car is fitted with a fuzzy logic gearbox,computer controlled within the engine management system.it will try to make you drive as economically as possible taking into account the gas pedal possition/road speed and load.it will also adapt to your driving skills.
so if you drive in town all the time it will change at higher revs and out of town, if you accelerate gently,lower down the rev range.Try this.without using the gas pedal put the car in drive and let the car do the work,it will accelerate on its own upto 4th gear.
then try again, from stop, keeping your foot about 1/3rd down on the gas and let the car do the work try not to move your foot.then, if you can, drive using only a max of 1/3rd gas pedal all the time and you will find within 100 miles the car has adapted to this and your gas mileage will go thru the roof. also the car will adapt to high grade gas.adjusting engine output to match.
