2004 Nissan Murano Engine Noise on 2004 Nissan Murano

Recently started hearing the engine valves chattering when not pressing on the accelerator. Chattering goes away after accelerating a few seconds. The engine transmission seems to labor around 30 MPH as the RPMs stay flat.

Really need to have your transmission and engine diagnosed, this sounds pretty serious. The engine noise could be an oil flow or pressure issue, or just really old oil. The transmission also needs to be inspected as well. Have a good shop go on a test drive with you. here are some shops: https://repairpal.com/directory?address=60013&car_brand_names=Nissan
