My nissann sentra 2005 1.8 Engine having 100,000 miles is having a sudden jerk when accelerate from gear 1 to 2. It doesn't happen when driving beyond gear 2. It happens more frequently when the engine is cold. But it's consistent when does this happen. Once I took it to my nissan service center, and I was unable to duplicate the problem. Then it started again. Seems like there is some transmission problem. Does anyone experiences this type of problem for nissan sentra 2005 1.8 Engine.

    I've got the same issue exactly like yours same engine and such... But i've got about 55k miles on mine. :confuse: I'll ask around at my dealership and get a general concensus. At least I have a 100k warranty on my car

    I was shocked today-with only 39.600miles-my '05 Nissan needs a transmission-at least my neighborhood Meinicke Care quoted 1,200. Where I bought it Lunnes Nissan,Bloomfield,NJ the crooks quoted me 2,000.labor and 12000parts! 3200.I guess the 3 of us are in the same boat-sorry but thanks lots for sharing about Nissan 2005.

    I took it to Nissan and my issues have been fixed.

    I had a bad throttle body valve
    clogged transmission valve
    and seepage from the transmission.

    Cost to me $50 :P

    What needs to be replaced on yours Nancy?

    Nissan extended its CVT transmission warranty was extended to 10yrs/120k miles... unless yours is a manual transmission your out of luck.
