2010 SL AWD, 145K - had all symptoms in title, gradually getting worse for the last 6 months. One simple part removed ALL of the above:

Part Name: AIR CLEANER INTAKE DUCT HOSE TUB TO THROTTLE BODY
Part #: 16576-1AA1A
Cost: $40

Labor: $20
Easily available, but here's the exact product I purchased: Amazon.com: Air Cleaner Intake Duct Hose Assembly Tub to Throttle Body For 09-14 Nissan Murano 11-16 Quest Replaces OE# 16576-1AA1A: Automotive

Mechanic totally missed this. He thought it was the catalytic converter. In fact, he removed the cats, test drove it, and it ran fine. I asked him to just try this little replacement part, just for sh*ts & giggles... win! Old part was almost completely shot. Looked fine from the outside, but damage appeared only when duct was stretched out. Damn, feels like I'm driving a completely new car now!
