Nissan Murano owners have reported 9 problems related to service engine light on (under the engine and engine cooling category).
The service engine soon light came on and the engine started to stumble as if it was fuel starved and was losing power and wanted to stall. Putting the car in neutral and goosing the gas at idle at traffic lights kept the vehicle going until I could get it to the dealership. The dealer replaced the cam and crank position sensors. One year later the same two parts failed and were replaced. They lasted less than one day and now the vehicle is at the dealership for major repairs because of either the parts or a combination of the parts and internal engine parts.

I just purchased this vehicle on 7/15/14, drove it home and it would not start 7/16/14. I was able to get the vehicle started, but the service engine soon light came on and it shut off 2 more times while parked. I was finally able to get it started and running to go about my errands. I stopped to pick someone up from the hospital and it started up, but immediately shut off again. Eventually, it started bucking and shuddering while I was driving and seemed as if it was going to shut off. I was able to get it to the dealer I purchased it from and he is taking responsibility of getting it serviced. The diagnosis was the rear cam position sensor went bad. I called haldemann Nissan in hamilton, NJ to inquire about recalls, as I knew this was a recall issue and was told that my VIN number had no recalls.

Shortly after purchasing our 2009 Nissan Murano in sept 2012 a loud noise was heard at times in the floor board. . . It was discovered to be a broken motor mount. . . This was replaced under 30 day warranty from place of purchase. The sunroof cover also was defective as it would not open completely at times and also required replacing. Since this time in 2013 the wipers do not work properly at all times. . . This has not been recreated for a tech to inspect. . . . Sometimes they do not go as fast as should if heavy rain and other times go too fast if barely drizzling, this is on the intermittent function. February 2014 was due to take in for routine oil change that day and service engine soon light came on that morning. . . Was advised needs new catalytic converter, was at 85k, manf. Warranty went out at 80k, extended warranty we purchased and paid extra for was to cover up to 150k; however, does not cover this part. Nissan says nothing on them, funny they are the ones who made the vehicle, and regardless of this being a used vehicle (we are the second owner) this is not something you can tell in advance is going out. . . We have not had any noise prior and this was first time light came on. This is very costly and something that has to be fixed in order to pass inspection or I will not have a vehicle to drive.
While driving my wife to work my car stopped working and I pulled over to the side of the road. The service engine soon light came on and I was able to start the car again. The next day I was driving at about 50 miles and hour and the same thing happen twice. The car will nor start unless I give it some gas by stepping on the accelerator. I checked the failure codes and got p0340, bank 1 camshaft positioning sensor failure. Called my Nissan dealer in santa rosa calif. And was told my vehicle was not a part of recall 03v455000. This is wrong. This problem is well known and all 2003 Nissan Murano's should be included. My car has 103,000 mikes.
Murnao has been maintained wth all oil changes/schd mx done by the book. Couple of days ago I was sitting in line at a drive thru and the car abruptly died. There were no warning lights prior to the event. The service engine soon light came on then went back off after a restart. Then yesterday it died while slowing to a stop sign at aprox 15 mph. This time the service light stayed on after the restart. Again this morning it died, this time in traffic while traveling at aprox 50 mph. Parked the Murano and borrowed a friends car for the rest of the day. Did my homework online and noticed the recall for this engine stall. Got the engine codes from a local shop and suprise; camshaft position/crank position sensors. Of course when I called Nissan my VIN is not affected by the recall 03v455000. Contacted local Nissan dealer, est repair costs $600+. Nissan is not holding up its end of thier deal on this vehicle. Please take note, do not buy Nissan.

Can stalls on highway while driving. Service engine soon light comes on. Car will not start--engine will not turn over after this occurs. No accident but could cause accident. Repairman initially stated it was a loose gas cap--tightened and service engine soon light went away. But it happened again yesterday and I stalled out at a light. Car would not start right away. Eventually did start.
