Well, it just might be that you're out of transmission fluid. I hope that's not the case.

A better response might be possible if you tell us (1) what's the problem? (2) the history of this situation and (3) outline what corrective measures, tests or checks you have already performed.

You initiated a thread on this same topic the other day and the advice you received was to have the car towed to a transmission shop that can service CVTs. The main problem is you opened up the transmission so there's no telling what happened before, during, or after. BTW...how experienced are you with fixing CVTs? Dealerships usually don't even service them--if a car shows up with a mechanical transmission problem they take it out and put a new one in. The service manuals have no procedures for taking them apart, only how to take it out of the car and re-install it.

That's still not much information.

The Nissan position on this is that there are no rebuilds, there are transmission exchanges. As far as I know, Nissan doesn't make major parts available and dealers can't repair them if it's more than a valve body or other peripheral parts. They drop the old one and install a new one. That's a big bill.

As far as reports here go, these transmissions are still essentially sealed units full of unobtanium, and Nissan doesn't make rebuilding or the related information available even to dealerships.

My advice is to have a indy shop check for a used transmission from a wrecked Murano, and have them do a swap for you. That's probably about a $3,000 project, which isn't a lot more than a quality rebuilder would charge for a complete transmission rebuild...if one were possible with parts and information available to transmission shops, which I sincerely doubt.

Good for you! That will require a lift, but it's certainly something that can be done if you have that. Of course we didn't know that.

Hope it works out great for you.

Well I am sure Nissan rebuilds the old ones and lists them as new ones. :p

Thanks,
