you need a better mechanic that traces ALL of the possibilities of each code, not just read the code and trow in a part hoping that it's fixed ~ it can be wiring as well, not just plug in a new part as mentioned on the 2nd trouble code to the vehicle speed sensor
The Murano uses a special CVT fluid that is available only at your dealership. 1 Qt cost me around 17.00 a few years back for my 06 Murano. The fluid is perfectly clear-unlike other transmission fluids and is designed just for the CVT.
1. check transmission fluid level or if you can change the fluid & filter.
2. check throttle position sensor (tps).
3. if fluid level & tps are ok & still not upshifting automatically, temporarily (so you can take it to a transmission specialist) , try to manually shift. starting from dead stop, shift to D1. at about 25mph shift to D2. (be gentle on the accelerator & don't over rev on each gear. release accelerator pedal & don't step on the brakes while shifting from D1 & D2).
If your vehicle has the CVT for the transmission, you must use the proper fluid first off. (Nissan NS-2)
There should be a drain plug on the transmission. These transmissions dont have a cooler lline that runs through the radiator to cool the fluid like older vehicle, some of them have a cooler built into the transaxle assembly that actually has coolant running through it. Below i have included a list of the various transmissions used in this vehicle, be sure to use the proper fluid or this will ruin the transmission very quickly and will void any warranty (if still available). You can also check the handle on the transmission dipstick, there should be a label stating which fluid to use.
*Note: Do Not Overfill the fluid, any slight overfill will cause poor operation of the transmission. If there is a way for you to measure how much you drain out, i would strongly recommend doing so, and be sure to put that same amount back in, as to reduce the chance of overfilling.
its a sealed transmission. it has a cap that screws on the transmission to add but you cant check the level.
the only way is to put it on a level lift and under the transmission there are two small plugs that unscrew (metal bolts) may be allen head, cant remember exactly right now its been a while, one to drain and other about 2 or 3 inches higher that you remove and fill with fluid trough plastic cap i mentioned before till it starts draining trough the bolt hole. then you know it is level.
tighen all screws and ports backup and your done.
just add half qts by half qts till fluid drains from level plug. REMEMBER ENGINE MUST BE HOT AND RUNNING ON.
IF YOUR DRAINING CHANGING FILTER AND REFILING FROM NOTHING WARM ENGINE UP ON OLD FLUID THEN START PROCEDURE.
I have a feeling you have the transmission extremely over full. I actually am pretty familiar with maintenance service. When you drain the system off the pan you only retrieve about 35% of the fluid. I would start by checking the level on the stick agian and confirm it. If its over full drain it agian and add 4 qts for starters. Start the truck and with the brake pedal compressed place gear selecter in each gear for 10 seconds then return to park and check level agian. Total transmission capacity is 9qts. and the preferred fluid is DEXRON III / MERCON.
