The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

Just replaced air filter, fuel filter, and plug. Ran good for 10 minutes then started spuddering and died. Restarted right away and huge cloud of blue smoke came out. It spudders for a minute and dies


Blue smoke is oil. Have you checked you pcv? (Pollution control valve) it usually runs from one of the valve covers to the airfilter unit.

Jeep Wangler is getting poor gas milage what could be the problem?


Bad fuel, dirty fuel filter, dirty air filter, dirty injectors. I'm assuming there's no check engine light on. You should get upwards of 20mpg easy. try replacing the airfilter and fuel filter. I would get a K&N airfilter, i've had great luck with them. you should notice amore power and better fuel efficiency. Also, use an injector cleaning additive, like Lucas, and use synthetic engine oil. it cost more, but you'll change it less often and it's worth it. I'm a fan of valvoline. oh, and make sure your tires are inflated properly, that can make a noticeable difference

My Murano has 85K miles and I would like to keep it another 85K. What is the recommended maintenance schedule from 85K to 170K?


just do your oil changes spark plug changes airfilters ,fuel filter, maybe a radiator flush to keep antifreeze fresh..check ur fluids brake,powersteering,just check tranny oil. do not do transmission oil change unless you have shifting problem people tend to change things that arent necessary i believe you having timming chain never has to be replaced just change things that you havent done since you've gotten it and you should be okay
