2003 – 2007 Nissan Murano ENGINE AIR INTAKE DUCT minor idle fluctuation or poor acceleration

Download Nissan is conducting a voluntary safety recall on model year 2003 – 2007 Murano vehicles. Under certain conditions, the intake duct, which is connected to the intermediate resonator in the air intake system of the engine, may separate from the resonator with engine movement. This could cause minor idle fluctuation or poor acceleration. If this occurs, and the vehicle continues to be driven without being serviced, the engine may stall while driving. To remedy this potential condition, Nissan is conducting this voluntary safety recall campaign to replace the air intake duct with an updated part and the air duct clamps with new clamps at no charge for parts or labor. SERVICE PROCEDURE CAUTION: Do not use any lubricant when removing or installing the air ducts and resonators. Lubricant may adversely affect the ducts and resonators. 1. Disconnect the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) hose from resonator 1. 2. Loosen the clamps shown in Figure 1 (clamps at both ends of the air duct assembly). 3. Remove the air duct assembly from the vehicle and set it on a clean working surface. 4. After removing the air duct assembly, cover the openings to the electronic control throttle and airflow meter with clean cloth / rags. CAUTION:
