I took the Murano in and got the recall work done but for them to check the SES light they "needed" to charge $140, they found a few codes. One being the crank sensor the other being the transmission.

They are now going to replace the transmission and the crank sensor (~$73). At least they got me a rental, an Altima Hybrid.

Just found recall...Nissan won't cover...what now?

Hi! I just found this recall yesterday and contacted Nissan. They said my car WAS covered but the work had already been completed!

We haven't had this service done and ARE having problems with it leaking air and the car stalling!!!

Anyone got any ideas?

We're the original owners. (Oh and the dealer is out of business!)
Thanks!

Try tightening all of the intake system clamps. That's what I did, but I did it before any of the intake system parts started to loosen up and/or come apart. I've never had a problem, and have just ignored this recall.

Don-

Are you sure you did not have the recall done while the MO was in for an oil change or something else?

Any reputable dealer should be able to look at the intake components and tell if they are OEM or the revised ones. When they see the OEM components it should take little convincing to have them perform the recall. It's not like you had the recall performed then went back and replaced the revised components with OEM parts just for giggles.

If, like you say, you never had the recall done then either your old out-of-business dealer submitted false paperwork and received credit for labor not performed, or there was a paperwork snafu where the warranty work is recorded. I'd like to believe it is the latter but would not be surprised by the former.

Let us know what happens.

You sure you just didn't need to tighten up the existing clamps? That's all I did a few years ago (on my 04 SE) when this problem surfaced, and I have never had a problem with any of the intake components coming loose. I had the other 3 recalls - alternator, rear seat belt sleeves, and fuel tank shield - done, but see absolutely no reason to get the intake `fixed' since tightening up the OEM clamps myself.

Did you check if you have a failed motor mount?

yea, this sucks. I have had this same off and on for a few years. The first time it happened I was stuck in one of the exit lanes from a mall... hella not cool. Anyways, as soon as the tow truck driver came I explained it and he said 'vacuum leak' - popped the hood, immediately identified it and bolted it on - no charge. I tipped him $20 though. This has popped off off and on many times since - enough to get fed up and ordered an aftermarket intake. The big fat 3" couplings are a heaven send. Although now it's time for a smogcheck and I loathe trying to put this all back on.

And yes, you guys are right... with the CVT it's kind of dumb - but the silicone couplings are awesome.

This is my answer:
> 1 Spectre 4" (I trimmed off 1")
> 1 Spectre 22° 6"
> 1 Spectre intake drill-bit kit
(Includes multiple bits, and grommet
sizes)
> 1 return line
> 1 3" rubber boot
> Reused the screw clamps
Total cost was right at $50.
Post-install reports ( is been about 2
months now)
-engine is more audible upon start-up &
acceleration.
- gas mileage is the same
- No error codes
- no concern of previous acceleration/ safety issues after a visit for an oil
change
- the proverbial "butt-dyno" says that there is improved throttle response, & maybe a couple ponies?
I think that having this installed really aid's the K&N air filter's ability to bring in more air. After this, I'm going to figure a way to promote more outside air into the stock air box for the K&N filter.

I have had to take my 2006 into the dealer 3 times to get this fixed and secured. It seems that when the air filter is replaced during oil change it comes loose.

Who changes the air filter at each oil change - even if you are stretching those to 7-8K miles with full synthetic? And, when you change the filter, wouldn't you notice if you are loosening the intake air ducting?

I'm sure most here (like me) with first gen Mos are regularly changing our air filters without having this problem. In the 10+ years I've owned my 04 SE, I've only had to tighten the intake duct clamps once. That obviated my having to bring the car in for the recall.
