You will not believe my answer unless you personally inspect and fix it yourself.

Check the air intake (air inlet) tube.

The air tube between the MASS AIR FLOW (MAF) sensor and the intake manifold has a leak.

When the engine speed up to 15+ miles (2nd gear range) the air gap open wider and cause incorrect air/fuel mixture and cause this bucking condition.

YOU HAVE TO LOOK HARD for this small leak between MAF and intake manifold.

A worn out motor and transmission mounts willl make the condition worst.

A worn out wiring harness to the MAF sensor and bad grounding wire will also cause this condition.

Nissan Sentra 2005 lags in changing 1st to 2nd gear


You need to have the systems computer tested for fault codes, that is the very 1st thing that needs to be done. If they rebuilt the transmission for $900 they did not replace very many parts or do a through job, the average cost is more like $2500.00

It definitely has a converter 1st, 2nd- get a second opinion about that motor issue unless u get a good answer what the cause is. A bad motor will cause that but a million other things would also. A clogged converter would give u power loss also. Good Luck

Check your Ignition timing before anything
check your plugs see what color they are
red or orange means carb is to lean , black
