No
Nissan Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Ok.

Have you driven with a dealer tech?

Did they scan it for codes?

Does this fault happen everyday?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I have took it to dealer tech. They said they can't find nothing and the code is not show up on their computer
Nissan Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Perhaps you should make a video for them?

No codes stored, and dealer techs that say no fault while testing is difficult to give an answer to.

Do you mean bumpy gearchange, surging throttle, brakes?
