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.
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
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.
While driving the intake pipe loosens and the vehicle stalls. Replaced clamp with more robust clamp
When having a oil change and filter replacement bring this to the attention of the technician otherwise they will not fully tighten clamp
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.
Hoses came loose after having oil changed and filters replaced. Car began jerking and then engine died leaving me stranded. This happened twice while using the same place to have car serviced. I bought my own tool to tighten the clamps myself.
Car would not start randomly and a check under the hood and re attachment and the car started.
