  1. 210k Never Changed CVT Fluid - Thoughts?

    2nd Gen (2009 - 2014)
    with that many miles without a change, i'd just do a drain & fill rather than a total fluid exchange. be sure to change the external filter also. it should require ~ 5+ quarts fluid total so have 6 on hand. use only genuine Nissan ns2. this is a relatively simple & straight-forward procedure...
  2. What's this connector for/to next to the obd port?

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    there's supposed to be a ribbon cable from the obd2 port to that weird little connector; that sounds odd.
  3. Murano 2015 100k miles jerking

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    was genuine Nissan ns-3 cvt fluid used? was the filter changed along with the cvt fluid? what's the cvt dtc?
  4. What's this connector for/to next to the obd port?

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    anyone have any idea?
  5. Rear brake pads for 2016 Murano

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    2nd this. I like the akebono's.

  7. Adding heated steering wheel to 2015 sl with tech package

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    has anyone successfully (or even unsuccessfully tried) added an oem heated steering wheel to a non factory equipped Murano? I really miss having it and on the 15's, it wasn't available except on the platinum's (which didn't want because of the cooled seats). I see where someone did it on a...
  8. Here's one for discussion: Snap/clank noise from rear - possibly inside

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    check your hatch struts. I know of someone with a 3rd gen that had a weird clunk from back. they took out the spare, jack, tools etc to no avail. when they finally went to the dealer, they were told that there's been "issues" with some of the hatch struts. since being replaced, they've...
  9. How long do alternators last on 2010 models?

    2nd Gen (2009 - 2014)
    not sure on 2nd gen muranos but my 4th gen maxima's alternator lasted until ~190k. where'd you find the rebuild kit? kindly post a link or etc so that I can keep it in mind as, when the time comes, i'd prefer to rebuild mine rather than buy cheap aftermarket or questionable rebuilt by others...
  10. 2012 Murano - Snow Driving

    2nd Gen (2009 - 2014)
    i'm in Chicago so similar but not quite as bad winter weather. 18" Michelin premier ltx's have been very good to me and more than adequate for the last few winters we've encountered. but nothing beats a set of dedicated snow/ice tires. you have sufficient thread left so i'd say poor thread...
  11. what should alternator output voltage be?

    2nd Gen (2009 - 2014)
    I didn't think switching would make a difference, but did it anyhow just to follow good troubleshooting procedures. result, no difference. after reviewing the charging & engine control sections of the 2015, 2011 & 2016 murano's, I believe that the variable charging feature is disabled in the...
  12. what should alternator output voltage be?

    2nd Gen (2009 - 2014)
    I took your earlier advice and put a trickle charger on it overnight so that it's completely topped off. still got the same voltage out of the alternator where it drops to and stays at 14.0v with very infrequent 1 second drops below that. I tried emailing the cvtz50 guy at [email protected] a...
  13. what should alternator output voltage be?

    2nd Gen (2009 - 2014)
    thanks. I read through this section and I now believe that that 11 is acting properly while the 15 is not acting as it should. in my post 4 I go into a bit of why I started on this endeavor. but after reading how the power generation voltage variable control system is supposed to work...
  14. what should alternator output voltage be?

    2nd Gen (2009 - 2014)
    went on a 500 mile round trip excursion this weekend with the 15 and its still putting out 14v. I wonder if the alternator could be putting out 14v but just not much current. i'm not so good electrically so I don't know the intricacies of alternators/electrics. I have an amp clamp on order...
  15. what should alternator output voltage be?

    2nd Gen (2009 - 2014)
    yeah, I thought that about the less driven one but even after longer (80 miles steady higher speed highway) driving, it's still like this. I didn't have any problems (besides the corrosion noticed and corrected ~ 6+ months ago) but i'm about to hook up an auxiliary battery to power buffered...
