drive it it jerks forward and it feels as if when i step on the gas it doesn't get
the gas for at least ten seconds then it will jerk forward , my service check

Also, it hesistates to start when i turn the key 75% of the time. help?

Sure, since the check engine light is on, you can scan for the faulty codes. This will help us determine what your potential issue is. You can have a local auto parts store scan it for free and post the codes back here.

My 2015 nissan sentra car keeps stalling and dies when i leave it running and then get in it and put it in gear. Its also not picking up speed when i step on the gas hard and is really hesitant and actually slows down. What is it? No check engine light is on or nothing either.
