Is it also sputtering when accelerating rapidly? Is the check engine lit? If yes, get the code. It could be a misfire because of your spark plugs/wires or coil or a faulty MAF. It could also be a dirty MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor). It could use a cleanup with MAF cleaner ONLY. It you have a code, it can save you time. And to be sure, has your air filter been changed these last years?

    My Sentra gives a jerk at about 20-25 mph initially when I start driving. But once I drive about 2-3 miles, it gets back to normal and no more jerks. Any idea what could be the problem?
