Customer Question

good morning...I have a 2015 sentra...starting yesterday, the car suddenly loses power and I have to drift to the side of the road, I almost caused an accident this morning....the engine does not shut off completely, but pressing the gas pedal does not make a difference.
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: the loss is the same all the time, the rpms will hover around 1K. after sitting for a while, it returns to normal...the rpm guage seems to indicate there is trouble with the trans....after looking online, it seems the trans in these cars are defective
JA: Are you fixing your Sentra yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: it is still under warranty, the problem began yesterday...I will be returning it to the dealer
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no,

Let me know,thanks Pete
