2016 Nissan Sentra - UNKNOWN OR OTHER and POWER TRAIN Failure Complaint (#b09d50)

2016 Nissan Sentra

  • Date of Incident: May-25, 2022
  • Date complaint filed: Feb-29, 2024
  • Failed components: UNKNOWN OR OTHER and POWER TRAIN

I have been having this problem for years and no one has been able to tell me what is wrong or how i can fix it. My rpm’s will fluctuate rapidly and i am unable to accelerate and it feels jumpy. It stopped accelerating completely one time on the freeway. I was only able to get back up to 25mph, it was so scary. Luckily i was close to an exit and got off. Replaced mass air flow sensor and it started working normally for about a month. It has not completely stopped working since then but the rpm’s still fluctuate most days. I feel scared it will give out one day or cause me to crash. I have taken it to different mechanics as well as the nissan dealership and they all say nothing seems wrong. They recommend a transmission drain and fill, which i have done. The problem still persists. I see this is a common issue with others as well. It needs to be addressed as it is extremely scary and puts peoples lives at risk.
