Chris, my wife has a 2007 Nissan Murano. When you give it gas it sometimes sounds like a rattling noise when taking off then stops however after driving awhile and you let off the gas it comes back. Now when i popped the hood and had her give it some gas I don’t hear anything at first and then around 2000 rpm it sound as if this noise is louder almost a tapping sound - coming from the intake

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

It sounds as if it’s coming from the intake manifold, or in that area

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Murano yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well I am somewhat of a mechanic. I’ve change the cam position sensors and crankshaft s

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Sorry the crankshaft (speed) sensor cause the code was stating that when the engine light came on.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
