Nissan sentra jerking

Asked by Apr 03, 2010 at 03:22 AM about the 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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?

Wow that's a strange one. But try to solve the problem by eliminating possible causes for this issue. I would try the free stuff like rotating the tires
