Can I drive with a transmission problem?

If your Nissan Murano can still make it up and down the road, you might say “It’s fine, I’ll just drive it until I can get it fixed”. But that is not always a good idea, depending on the symptoms. You see, there are a lot of (very expensive) moving parts inside of a transmission, and if something isn’t right, continuing to drive with a transmission problem could damage something else.

How often does a Nissan Murano transmission need to be replaced?

The overall lifespan of a Nissan Murano transmission largely depends on how well it was maintained. Factory design flaws also factor into this equation, along with how/how hard you drive. But on average, we’ve seen the Nissan Murano transmission last for between 130,000-180,000 miles. A high quality replacement transmission however, can last considerably longer if all of the factory design flaws have been addressed and the vehicle has been maintained.

How are Nissan Murano transmission issues diagnosed?

It is fairly easy to guesstimate what the root cause of your Nissan Murano transmission problems might be, but you won’t truly know unless you have the right tools and experience. A good mechanic or transmission repair center will be able to connect your truck to a computer and find out which diagnostic trouble codes (DTC’s) have been stored. Once they know what to look for, they can perform a visual inspection to verify the problem.

How is a Nissan Murano transmission replaced?

In order to replace your Nissan Murano transmission, the truck has to be lifted from the ground in order to gain access to all of the parts that will need to be unbolted. Then the transmission can be lowered to the ground (typically with a transmission jack), so the new transmission can be installed. Once it is in place, for the 6L80, the vehicle PCM will have to be reprogrammed / reflashed to accept the new transmission using the latest GM subscription.

How to Solve Nissan Murano Transmission Problems

Solution A: Buy a Used Nissan Murano Transmission

The quickest way to fix your transmission problems is to simply buy a used transmission or used transmission. These can be found at most junk yards, and they often come with a 30-90 day warranty. However, there’s no way to determine the actual condition of the internal components, so you could be spending a bunch of money to have the exact same problems. Plus, that warranty only covers the transmission if it’s defective, not the labor costs that you’ll have to pay.

Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Nissan Murano Transmission

Another option would be a rebuilt transmission or rebuilt transmission. A local repair shop will remove your transmission, then install a bunch of new parts during the rebuild. The problem here is, the skills and experience of each transmission rebuilder will vary widely from shop to shop, so you could have problems from something that wasn’t adjusted properly. And the 1-2 year warranty might only cover you at certain transmission repair shops, in a specific geographical area.

Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Nissan Murano Transmission

What Transmission Do I Have?

Many owners depend on their vehicle to commute and get things done. Their gasoline engines are designed to go 100’s of thousands of miles, so it makes sense to invest in a remanufactured transmission.

The CVT in my 2005 Murano finally gave it up at the 150,000 mile mark. But I’m not complaining. The last two Chevy Suburbans we have owned both required a new transmissions around 120,000 miles. Drive conditions and usage was about the same between the Murano and the Suburbans. Go figure.


I’m looking at a 2010 Nissan Murano with 207,000 miles is that to many miles should I buy it

Just sold my 2010 Nissan Murano a few months ago with 180000 to my mechanic because the radiator exploded. He sold it as is to someone else. The transmission went shortly afterwards. I would not buy a high mileage Murano with original transmission. Way too expensive to repair.


Get a Toyota. Stay away from Nissan . I have 101000 on my Murano 2013 and the transmission went on me. The lift gate also will not open. Sucks.

I have a 2007 Nissan Murano a couple of days ago the transmission will only shift in first and reverse not 2nd and 3rd today I drained the transmission fluid strained it through a strainer put the transmission fluid back in and it shifted fine for about 45 minutes now it is back to doing the same thing only first gear


Why are these problems popping up, does NISSAN tests all their vehicles before putting out in the market?


Because of CVT transmission designs never being meant to take the stress of a V6. GM never got it to work right on anything over a low powered 4 cylinder.


I have a 2010 Nissan murano transmission started leaking an I think its internal its leaking right where the breath hole is what do I do


It’s definitely the transmission. Just had the same thing Happen to me. If your under 120k Nissan will cover it.

Victor C

Is that on any year Nissan with 120.000 or less miles.


Does Nissan cover 2007 if it is under 120,000


Yes, but you have to be servicing with Nissan to get that covered.

julia mcgovern
