    I have the same problem with the check engine light staying on. I took it in once and after 400.00 it went out. Then a month later it came back on. I tried a new gas cap, still on. I havent done anything since and it stays on all the time without any problems noticed. I took it ti the car wash last week and it went off again, a week aler back on.

    Who know's. Other sites I've visited say its standard with all Nissan Sentra's.

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.

When it shifted into 3rd it kind of jerked and then when it tried to shift into 4th it all the sudden downshifted


this could be a number of things it could be a motor mount loose allowing itto shake when shifting causing jerks, it could be a gasket has gone out in the transmission so there is no pressure when it shifts, Let me know what you find out :)

2002 Montero Sport 4X2 jerks during and after shifting into 3rd or fourth gear. Particularly bad going uphill. Not so bad during hard acceleration. Have changed fuel filter, plugs, etc. Even changed center...


Check the 'U' joints in the drive line. Check the engine/transmission mounts for damage or looseness. The real enigma is trying to determine if this is an engine or a chassis problem. If the check engine light is on, doing a scan of the computer should show engine problems. If no light, concentrate on anything in the chassis for periodic binding. Good luck!

you may not have trans problem at all. most of the time your motor mounts when worn out or broken can cause a hard ****. Put your car into gear with your foot on the brake and give some gas abrubtly and see if your engine jumps. do the same in reverse. remember to use the brake and have your hood open to see if your motor jumps.

Is it a possible transmission problem?
Does the car start out in 1st gear?
....maybe it is starting off in 2nd or 3rd and kicking down into 1st once you get rolling?
Try and feel or hear if the RPM increases when you get the power back as it jerks.
