Hello,

I just bought a 2001 Nissan Pathfinder, my problem is when the truck is moving and I have to take my foot off the gas for any reason, the vehicle jerks. It does the same when when applying my foot back to the gas peddle. It only does this when the truck is in motion, and it seems to be worse the faster im going.

Any info will be greatly appreciated.

The first thing to do is an ECU code readout. If any fault codes are set, they can help you to diagnose the problem.

You're going to have to explain "jerks".
The first took took the definition of jerking is something to do with the motor, As in bogging.

When I read you post I took is as suspension related.

Does it jerk back and forth?
Does the back end of the truck jerk to the side? Could be rear trailing arm bushings.

Give us alittle more to go on. So we don't have to play 20 Questions.

Sorry, Some additional info.

It jerks to the side. Feels like it in the rear, however all the bushings were replaced along with the upper arms and another smaller arm (sorry, im not sure the name) shocks were also replaced.

The truck use to sway back and forth on the highway, the work that we did this past weekend (noted above) seems to have corrected this for the most part.



The feeling of this jerk is like something moving out of place with throttle and back into place when you let off. Also it doesn't do it when I go from stopped to applying gas. Only when the truck is moving already.

Hey man I know its been a very long time, but what ended up causing this problem? I am having the same exact problem and it feels dangerous at higher speeds. Thanks for any input. Im thinking its a wheel bearing issue as of now.
