2005 Nissan Murano 18,000 mi,
the air intake tube kept coming loose- especially after oil changes. Extremely dangerous because when I would go from a stop to pulling out into traffic, the Murano would lurch forward a bit and just keep stopping and starting and barely moving. Fortunately it was recalled and got it fixed for free.

Had to have the car towed as a result of this problem.

Almost Hit a tree because car turned off and steering wheel locked after air intake came loose while driving. Plugged it back in, drove down the road and bought a new clamp at an auto parts store to ensure it did not come off again. No problem since, 6 months later

Vehicle was stalling at stops and during initial acceleration. Checked the air intake tube and it was detached. Yes after an oil change at a quick stop place. Now I check before leaving theses shops. Remember oil change guys are not mechanics they don't double check anything. Back to the problem, It was fixed by just reconnecting the tube.
Problem for years. Finally they recalled it.

Same problem. My wife took it to an oil change place and the problem started a couple of days later. I checked the intake tube, and it was detached. Slid it back on and the problem went away. Thanks for the tip. I may have been searching for the cause for a while.
