So it's a 2006 model with 71,000 miles on the cloak and nearly full service history. It's had a low rumbling noise since owning. Didn't if wheel bearing sounded like coming from gear box area, but could only be heard in drivers seat.

Problem is went for a full service including gear box oil and now struggling to move forwards. Goes in gear fine, but makes an awful noise when moving now.

Anyone have any advice? Gear box? Guy at garage said he could only get 6 litres of oil in when book says 9. But dip stick was on full.

Any help would be great thanks

If it's an all wheel drive model, check your transfer case, it only holds 5/8 pint of gear oil. If you see signs of a leak, it may be toast based on the sounds and behavior you mentioned...

Thanks for info will have a look. Our garage had it on the ramps but couldn’t see anything. Annoying we had just paid out for gear box oil change. Seems weird it would happen shortly after.

The garage did it mate. I'm sure he got the correct fuild. I told him it was special fluid.

It seems like in some countries the Murano AWD lock button has 4WD printed on it...

I highly doubt there's a true four wheel drive drive-train in a Murano...

It would be best if you reference the Owner's Manual specific to your country and model.

I can only guess, and my guess would be that it locks the AWD function and should only be used rarely, for instance provide traction in snow to get unstuck. Any other use will put severe stress on the transfer case due to the Murano not having a center differential to allow turning without binding and damaging AWD components...

Looks like the cost will be too high. A lot of specialists haven't worked on Murano's as there not that common in the UK

What was their diagnosis -- is it the CVT or transfer case that is failing?

They were useless. They had never had a Murano in before, so found couldn't get it in gear. So had to contact someone else and they said thousands. They mainly have Nissan qashqai's in and didn't seem to know much. I wish they mentioned this before we had it transported down there.

Yeh most peopel are scared of CVT costs on Muranos. But if you find a specialist. (i did online ) You can sort it out real cheap. many who dont know much about it just recommendto replace a part or whole Transmission. or just damage it more by doing somethign wrong
