Murano SL
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 23 days ago
you experience any noise or shudder when driving? Especially during light acceleration?
Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
answered it is a Murano SL now what is the answer to my questions? or is this just to raise the cost of my experience? the $5.00 could lead to more questions and more fees, which is OK but to not get an answer to my original questions seems like a scam? what is it answer or refund .
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 23 days ago
Realize that the cost is for the question, regardless of how long it takes for us to chat there is not additional fees. Ask all you need until we resolve it.That being said....

Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 23 days ago
First thing to keep in mind is that the 07 and 08 Muranos has a CVT warranty extension. For 10 years/120k miles on the CVT. Your likely over the age but not the mileage so Nissan will likely work with you to share the expense if it turns out to be severe.

Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 23 days ago
The shudder your experiencing when shifting into gear is likely related to the torque converter, which is the whole reason is asked you about any shudder under light acceleration as this would confirm my suspicion.

Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 23 days ago
The thing to remember about the TCC is that fluid deterioration is susceptible to shudder issues. So if that’s the case you would start with a fluid exchange and go from there to see if it resolves itself.

I will schedule a fluid flush as soon as possible and take it from there. Very much appreciate your answer and will consider the other arrangements in the future. Good job. Thanks, Ed
