Just to chime in on this. Has the timing belt been replaced? If not replace. On the flip side valves rattling could be a timing belt/timing issue or cam all they way to bad gas. Plugs ect I would do a full service turn up, everything not just oil & radiator fluids, but belts, PCV valve, plugs, wires to trans if auto, check all vacuum lines. Test, Confirm, Clean, Replace. If the timing belt slips to far or breaks goodbye engine.

    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?
