    are you saying i got bad gas ?

  • pc211sc Dec 08, 2008

    turns out it was a vacuum leak thus the "rich" smell and gas smell on the dipstick,did not have good combustion.

You need to have your engine flushed and cleaned out. One or more of your spark plugs aint firing. You need to replace them all to include the wires as well. If you dont get your engine flushed, you could blow your engine up.

    You do not have bad gas. If you get enough gas into your engine, when your spark plugs fire, it will blow up your engine.

Where is fuel pump reset on a 2003 nissan murano


There is no fuel pump reset. If ou rainout of gas you may have ruined the fuel pump. The only manufacturer that uses a resettable intertia switch is ford. This will only trip in the event of an accident to shut off the power pump.

Stalling and loss of acceleration


I will say as you know that,the spark plugs weren't your issue. That said,you and I know more than a dealer.
The level of fuel in the tank should have no bearing on idle & stall issues.
Why would a dealer release a vehicle,with idle issues,you brought it in for? Again the dealer. Is there a pattern here.
Sudden stall at idle-no previous problems!
Won't accelerate under load!

The cause??

Throttle Position Sensor
Idle Air Control-if so equipped
MAF Sensor
EGR Valve
Fuel Pressure Regulator
Vacuum Leaks
Etc
Does it have a Throttle Pedal Position Actuator,such as all the issues Toyoto had?
Do you have Stored Codes?

I would have a talk with a local shop and maybe consider leaving it for a few days,only if you know their good with these type issues and have an understanding that you control the billed hours your paying for.

We drove the car about 60 miles. Fueled up before


Try replacing the fuel filter and putting a bottle of HEET in the tank.

2005 nissan murano sl, with rattling sound when accelerating


I recently experienced the same symptom with my '05 Murano and it was not a fuel problem. The dealer listed the cause as dry axle splines and replaced both front drive shaft assy's. Note that this was done as warranty with no cost incurred by me.
