Asked by Jun 02, 2019 at 10:04 AM about the 2015 Nissan Sentra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Why is my car jerking at a high speed of 80mph after 100 miles on the highway? Does not do this any other time. Only at this speed. Car starts jerking and RPM drops between 3 and 4? I have t drive it at least a 100 miles. Car jerks and then speeds up. Only at 80mh

1 Answer


Might be a dirty fuel or air filter. Might be a bad alternator that can't keep up with the additional electrical load needed at a faster speed.
