I have a 2005 Nissan Sentra, 1.8L engine. When slowing down or stopped, the vehicle feels as if I have been hit from behind.A "jump" or "lunge" forward feeling. As if it has a severe miss. Spark plugs, plug wires, and coils replaced. Computer check shows a pass. What could it be?
Also, with this low mileage (35,000) I have had to replace motor mounts, struts (rear and front) and inner and outer tie rods. No sign of wear on the tires.
Do you
have the same problem?

Try slowing down in neutral see if it does not happen. Engine RPMs go up at that time?

Yeah, I feel like the transmission may be part of it. Doesn't change out like any I have ever owned. Changes out real quick at first, then slow as the speed picks up. Does a lot of changing as you go along in slow and go traffic. Will take it in to a shop tomorrow for a check. Believe it or not, have already had to change out motor mounts, struts, rear and front, and inner/outer tie rod ends. Car is not driven on rough surfaces and only has 35,000 miles. Well maintained. Nissan really did a lousy job on this one!

What is TSB? Yeah, very low mileage for these repairs. Just falling apart at the rubber. Nobody can figure why. Very costly project.
