My 05 Murano is doing the same thing. Starts fine. Idles fine. but, from a complete stop, it's almost like it doesnt even know I'm pressing the gas pedal. for 5-10 seconds it barely starts creeping and then, at about 1000 RPM or so, it goes like normal.
As long as I'm moving (10 mph or more), it drives fine.
It doesnt do it all the time, though. And when it happens, it's usually within the first 5 minutes of driving on surface streets. If I get pas that five minute mark, then I'm good to go all day. Well, at least until I turn off the car.
It's a crapshoot. I've got it at the dealership as we speak and even they can't figure it out yet since it appears to be so random.
Right after I posted this I got a call from the dealership. They were able to get the problem to occur while they were driving it around, so they were able to get a good reading from the computer.
It was the transmission. More specifically, the valve body. It's shot. I'm not sure exactly, but I'm guessing something is preventing pressures from building... maybe a seal or something that's gone bad. Thank God Nissan extended the warranty to 120,000 miles. I'm at 110,000 now.
