Question 2010 Murano LS transfer case/CVT

Does anyone know if the transfer case is part of the CVT assembly? - as in covered by the extended warranty? (10/120k)

No, the transfer case is NOT covered by the CVT's extended warranty.

Didn't think any MO past 2009 was covered under teh extended warranty. Are all CVT's now covered?

After 142K miles, my MO is history. Now sporting a loaded silver 2012 Ford Edge Limited with 20" wheels.

Nissan exteded the warranty on the CVT up to 2010 inclusive.

2011 and on the CVT was modified.

There was a bulletin on the transfer case, though. I had mine replaced under it.

This from turbizzy April 22, 2011:
"As of February 25th, 2011 Nissan released TSB NTB11-017 "2009-2011 MURANO SMALL TRANSFER LEAK"

If the dealership CONFIRMS there is a small amount of fluid leaking from the transfer assembly and the VIN falls between JN8AZ18W(*)9W-202328 and built between March 1st, 2009 - JN8AZ1MW(*)AW-133572 built till July 9, 2010, you get a new transfercase.

If it doesn't fall into the VIN range then it gets an inspection of the transfercase mating surface to transmission. If found bad, then gets the transfercase replaced. If found ok, gets rebuilt with new seals."

While changing my oil yesterday I see some oil buildup that looks like a leak from the transfer case. I don't have any visible leaks on my driveway so if it is from the transmission it is a very slow leak. Question is, should I have this addressed immediately or wait until I see more signs of a bigger leak? I'm currently only at 30,000 miles

Thanks

I wouldn't wait. The first time my transfer case started leaking they changed the seals. A few weeks later it started leaking again and they replaced the case under the 60,000 5 yr warranty. I would take it to dealer ASAP. Good luck.

REALLY? this is early (30,000miles) ..

I hope my '12 will be fine. Aside from visual check, do you guys feel anything strange? Like the bouncy ride, or rear pushes the MO (not equal traction) even though on dry, even pavement?

My MO is 2010, and because warnings on this forum one day I checked the car from underneath, and have a guess what ? I sow wet oily spot , next day phone call to my Nissan dealer, arranged appointment, they took some pictures, sent to Nissan Australia,
few days later phone call from dealer, yes I'm getting new transfer case. My Mo is booked this Monday (01/10) for replacement, they need the car for 3 days, and offered me replacement car for that time.
So the good news is Nissan Australia replace leaking TC, not repair, which is good.
By the way it wasn't leaking, just only small wet spot under TC.
Are there other Aussie MO's which affected by TC leaks problem?, or just only me .

UPDATE - I finally took the car to the dealer and they confirmed the transfer case leak. They ordered new seals and will install them under warranty when they come in later this week. I had them rotate and balance the tires as I was surprised to see the rear tires wearing faster than the fronts. I guess I'm used to my old audi that ran AWD fulltime, am I correct in assuming that Murano AWD is 'on demand'?

1) The owner's manual should have some helpful info on how the AWD works, but it is on-demand when front tires slip, NOT full time.

2) Sounds like you need to rotate tires more often. IMO tires should be rotated front to back at no longer than 5000 mile intervals.

3) Your Murano has a convenient reminder system built in to prompt you to change oil and rotate tires. Read the owner's manual for how to set the intervals to your preference. (It's also easy to figure out from poking buttons.)

Keep an eye out for leaks after they change the seals. Mine started to leak a few weeks after the seals were changed. I then insisted they put in a new case. Good Luck.

I have a 2011 SV and just had the Transfer Case replaced at 19k miles. The seals were replaced at less than 5k. Glad it's a lease, heheheheh.

I had a 2009 SL and ended up having the entire Transmission replaced as they were unable to stop the leak simply by replacing the Transfer Case.

Well, my seals are being replaced today, hopefully that fixes the problem. From yours and others experience, I'll be sure to keep an eye out for future leaks!
