2009 AWD murano 181000 miles
I was looking under the engine and discovered a leak between the engine and CVT at what appears to be a small plate about 3 or 4 inches long held on by 2 bolts it appears to be a plate you can take loose to look into the CVT housing. I didn't want to take it loose until I found out what I'm looking at. Anyone know with what I'm talking about and what could be the cause of the leak and a cure.
I understand it is out of the extended warranty..
I suggest the OP visit Nicoclub.com, download the service manual for his vehicle, and find out the function of the pieces he described.
"when that problem arrives i'll know what to do..." sounds like an assumption that the vehicle is going to fail. Why make that assumption? Oil cooler leaks are uncommon.
Not sure if it's oil or CVT fluid, The 1st pic is looking from front to back ,CVT is on right and engine on left.3rd pic is of the plate held on with one bolt not 2, but it looks like the leak is coming from the plate or whats behind it.
Thanks all for your help..
That inspection plate is on the upper oil pan. Like the other poster suggested, it could be engine oil leaking from the upper pan gasket and/or rear main seal, but only you can determine for sure what that fluid is. Either way, if it's engine or transmission it will be an expensive repair because of the labor involved. Is it actually dripping onto the ground? It looks to me like a slow seepage leak.
