2015 murano, awd. For the past few weeks, I've been having an odd whining noise come from the front of the car.. it only occurs in gear.. usually starts around 30mph.. gets louder the faster I go.. and reduces its pitch as I slow down.. does not occur while parked and revving.
Took it to dealer thinking it's a cvt issue.. I have 40k on the transmission (replaced at 118k).. no codes thrown.. but recommended transmission service. Got that done. Winding noise still there.
Fast forward later that day.. driving down road.. suddenly lose ability to accelerate.. I can switch to neutral.. and rev engine.. but putting it into gear and pressing gas pedal does not rev or move vehicle. AC stopped blowing.. traction light comes on. I turn off the car.. check under the hood a few minutes.. start it back up... put it in gear, drive it a quarter mile back to the house.
What the heck can this be? Gonna send it back to dealer tomorrow.
