2004 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 292007

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles


Vehicle will drive normally. Without any warnings the vehicle will quickly slow down to 10 - 15 mph. The engine remains running at approx. 3K rpms but with very few, if any, power transferred to the transmission. The check engine light does not illuminate and if the vehicle is shut off and re-started; the condition clears.
