Oil should not be an issue with the damper...I don't think. What ever causes the damper to rattle happened to me at a dead stand-still on a warm engine, like a red light or standing in traffic.jkoot said:Same Issue I am having on my Mo! could you describe the sound like you were driving a diesel? and that the sound only occurs when idling or slow acceleration?
One thing to mention that I notice that the sound occurs when my oil is at about 4-5000km and ready for a change. Could I be experiencing a different issue?
I have an 04' Murano SL with 134500km on it. (mostly highway)
Not even sure why it had to be warm to hear that but it was very noticeable. I hate to keep repeating myself but it sounded like an old worn out engine with lifters going clack-clack-clack.
BTW, you can't notice noise with hood open and head in the engine bay, you can hear it in the cab with doors closed. That is where the stethoscope comes into play.
Have the dealer (if you are going) check the damper near the back fire-wall.
