NISSAN SENTRA 2002 JERKS AND DIES/STALLS Sign In

I have a Nissan Sentra 2002 with 170,000 miles. On occasion, the car would jerk and just die. Starting is no problem. The car will start as immediately. This happens on 4 occasion this week already. I am wondering what the problem could be. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Is the check engine light on? If so we need the exact code numbers being stored. Most parts stores will scan it for free. What circumstances will it do this. Is it anytime, parked, leaving a stoplight, at highway speed? Does it only do it when up to temp, only do it cold, or both? The more we know the faster this goes. Have you had any work done recently?

My engine light has been on and off for the past year. I brought it to different shops and spent hundreds of dollars to no avail. I've been given different opinions and "solutions" by these shops. The light will just turn back "on" after a few days. I've never brought the car to a dealer, in the hope to save money. The light is "on" most of the time. On rare occasions, it will turn off for a day or so and then turn back on. I just gave up and just continued droving the car. It has been running well, until this "jerking". It will "jerk" anytime, during acceleration or when rolling to a stop. The engine code si "1402" which has something to do with the emission. I was told that this light code has been a known problem with Sentras. At high speed,during acceleration, the "jerking" does not "kill" the engine. The engine dies only when the car is rolling to a stop...as I mentioned earlier, restarting the engine is no problem. At this point, I don't know what to do...THANKS

You have a problem with the EGR system and maybe even more by now as you wouldn't know because you ignore the light. You need to have those things diagnosed properly by someone that actually knows what they are doing.

The dealer isn't your only option but you definitely need an upgrade from who you were using before.
