above.U&nder 40 mph it runs as well as ever. It will sputter when climbing a hill. Also the
a/c stoppe blowing cold and the ctuise has sropped working too. Is all this related? It has

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?
