On my way from Tennessee to Atlanta, right after we filled up w/gas, my Versa cut off and we had to re-start it. Then, while travelling up a mountain, it started jerking as i pressed the gas and the engine light came on. It worked fine Monday but then Tuesday, after the engine light went off, it started happening again. It feels like a fuel problem to me but i'm a car idiot. do i just need a new fuel filter or a fuel cleaner? Any experience would help. it's a 2011 with 40,000 miles, so i hope it's nothing major. Thanks!

I know this sounds silly, but did you check to make sure your gas cap is on good? Also you may have got some bad gas. Both of these have happened to me in the past on different vehicles.

Actually, that's not silly. It says to check the gas cap in the owner's manual. i thought it might be bad gas, too. Everything's been fine until yesterday it did that dang cut off thing again! I just don't want to get ripped off by the dealership or a repair shop. I may have to just bite the bullet and bring it in. Thanks for the response.

Could have been bad gas. I would have called the gas station and see if they had any problems with water in the gas. In addition, I would have put 2 bottles of HEET in the tank in case there is water in the gas.
