Sentra 4-cyl

While driving at any speed and without prior warning, the vehicle stalled intermittently. While driving 35-45 mph the vehicle jerked when shifting gears. While stopped at a red lights the vehicle has stalled numerous times. One time it stalled four times within one mile. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but they were unable to duplicate the problem. The consumer retrieved the vehicle from the dealer and continued to drive it all winter with no problems. When the weather became warm the vehicle began to stall again. The dealer was still unable to duplicate or correct the stalling problem. The consumer is afraid to drive the vehicle.
