#2315 of 2342 head gasket leaking
May 14, 2012 (10:37 am)
Hey thanks for some of the info I'v e been reading on the Nissan Murano. I have a 2009 SL that I bought new, really it's been pretty good and bullet-proof BUT after doing all major maint (oil changes, 30k- 60k etc). It is just 3yrs old and 60k and my independant shop in doing the 60k maintenance says "look here you may have a cracked head gasket."
Has Nissan had a silent recall on these? I got a letter extending the warranty on the CVT but nothing to date on the engine/head gasket. I have it with the dealer I bought it from now getting looked at.
thanks in advance!

#2317 of 2342 2006 Murano seat trim
Jun 06, 2012 (6:39 pm)
I just purchased an 06 Murano and the lower seat trim keeps coming loose. There is a plastic piece along the side where the seat controls are and a piece across the front of the seat. The piece on the front keeps coming out of the two "locking" brackets and then the side side piece lets loose as well. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks

I have the same problem. The remedy that worked for me is to take the seat back as far as it can go then sink it as low as it can go and then bring it forward so the left guide realigns into the side channel. This seems to have worked OK but whenever others adjust the seat differently it sometimes slips out again but I've been able to reset it each time in the same fashion previously described. I hope this helps you or others.
#2319 of 2342 considering buying a murano

I'd like to purchase a nissan murano, however, my mechanic, said Nissans are hard to diagnose. He said his brother purchased a murano which no one can diagnose, not even Nissan, why it looses acceleration after stopping at a stop light. Has anyone had problems with diagnosis in their Nissan?

Who did the 30K and 60K services? If it wasn't the dealer, check to see if they replaced the engine coolant. Nissan uses a very specific type of coolant/antifreeze. If regular ethylene glycol (like Prestone) was used, it attacks the head gaskets.

I recently replaced my transfer case in my 05 nissan murano. all has been reassembled but I have a lingering "Slip" and "VDC Off" lights that are on. the slip light is bright and the VDC off light is not as bright. If I unhook the battery they reset and they do not turn back on until I am about a quarter mile down the road. they turn on simultaneously. Then once on they are on right away when I restart the car. Help!!

Hello all - I have an 03 MO with 148000 miles and thru the years but here's is the list of stuff done and what is happening now.
the crank sensor 60000 miles
the cam sensor at 75000 replace
the seat gear broken( I replaced the gear myself )
the frame cracked fix myself ( had it welded)
now for the on going stuff
like the hesitation after driving on the expressways and coming to a stop in traffic then it hesitate in taking off still exist still dont see any answer to this ? anyone figure out what this is ? (I've seen reply's like it's the trans but I dont believe it has been going on way to long to be that and not always happens )
I do now have drops of oil either from rear seal or transfer case I treat with Wynn's ( its not much that comes out ) but the issue is it drops on the exhaust and burning oil smell appears.
the rt side window doesnt stay up when using the auto up it drops back down 6" ( dealer couldn't program ??)
When I have the tail gate open it locks all doors after a minute I almost lock my keys in it - dealer couldnt re-program it ?? any ideals out there ?
gas door actuator fails to open ( I just prevent it from locking not worth the trouble or cost )
maybe it's time I should think about trading it in for another car or SUV ...
#2324 of 2342 2006 Murano Delayed/no Blower
Oct 03, 2012 (4:45 am)
The blower of my Murano does not always work or is delayed.
I am using the manual mode. I have replaced the relay back in February 2012. Worked fine until last week. If I wiggle the relay or hit the fusebox are it will normally start. Searching the internat the relay is the problem. The relay is standard nothing hi-Tech. It would appear that the relay is not making a good connection but the relay replacement does fix the problem. This replacement I am going to verify that the contacts are good and tweak the terminals to insure that the connection is good.
Anyone have any sugestions
