    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.

Nissan Murano sound coming from engine area once engine is warmed up marble in a tin can sound.. only does this sound briefly when taking off from a stop.. after making the sound just briefly then goes...

its called detonation. you must be running regular gas in it. switch to super for few tank fulls. it will stop, but as soon as you put back regular, the noise will come back.nothing that will hurt the car, just annoying sound.

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.

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.
