I’m new to this forum but I’m seeking help here because no one else can figure out my car issues.
My wife and I have a 2011 Nissan Murano with ~140,000 miles on it. We don’t really notice any issues with this vehicle until we take it on 8+ hour long road trips. During these road trips our Murano will all of sudden be unable to get above 2500 RPMs at about hour 4 or so. This happens especially when we are going over mountain passes. To resolve our issue during the drive we stop at a rest stop, turn the car off, and wait 15-30 minutes and the car ends up being able to accelerate and go above 2500 RPMs just fine… This typically happens just once (sometimes twice) during our long road trips.
We have taken it to multiple mechanics and none of them have been able to identify what the issue is. They have inspected the transmission and they say the transmission shouldn’t be the issue. They also can’t replicate the issue. They have changed the transmission fluid but the problem still persists.
I’m interested in hearing what everyone’s opinions are on this issue and if you know of a solution.Thanks!
