So our Nissan Versa has 80 some thousand miles on it. And started doing something particularly interesting recently. It seems between about 35-45 mph and 70 mph if your rpms aren't high enough it feels as if its trying to shift but won't. As in the engine will keep revving as if it's try to grab that next gear and that kind of erratic revvinng will continue until you stop accelerating. Anyone have advice on what that could be? (Also it seems to do that worse when its wet outside for some reason)

Year and model of the car would be helpful along with the type of transmission you have.

I assume that it is a CVT transmission and I know you don't want to hear this, but the only thing I would advise you to do is to take it into the dealership and have it at least diagnosed by them to see if they come up with any issues. My 2012 CVT transmission was replaced under warranty with only 12,000 miles on the vehicle. In my case, the car would stutter while stopped but I also had the "Check engine light" lit up on my dash. Took it to the dealer, and they had it diagnosed in about 40 minutes. The Nissan CVTs have been problematic for the company to say the least. In most cases when a Nissan cvt transmission needs repairs, Nissan will replace the entire transmission rather than have the dealership make repairs to the one in the car. It is quite possible in your case it might only need a change in cvt fluid, and again let the dealership handle that. Good luck!!!!

Ya I dont really wanna take it to the dealership. Dealership wants 200ish for the diagnosis. It also doesn't help my jeep is in the shop. So I guess if you suggest take it them, I guess I'll take it when I get my Heep back later today.
