We took the alternator apart and discovered that one of the wires connecting the rotor to the slip ring had broken off. We soldered it back on and held it tight with clear epoxy. While there we serviced the internals to improve reliability. While taking off the alternator (which was not charging the battery) I noticed 3 tiny holes on the radiator's plastic top about the size of a pinhead. We had the plastic top replaced with a copper top. Heard a hum while driving past 60Km/h on the front driver's side so I thought I'd have the wheel bearings looked at. Apparently water had somehow made it into the bearing causing the internal factory lubrication to dry up.

Felt occasional surges while driving so we replaced the NS-2 transmission fluid with Valvoline CVT fluid. We drained as much of the old CVT fluid as we could and used an air compressor to blow the fluid in the lines to and from the cooler under the radiator out. A total of about 6 quarts was used. The surging is now gone and the transmission is as smooth as when it was new.

I could feel a light vibration in the cabin and suspected the engine mounts. True enough, once we had the car on the lifter and revved the engine we could clearly see that they were pretty much gone. The Nissan Murano uses a dynamic engine anti-vibration system wherein the front and rear engine mounts have pistons driven by electrical motors. This configuration allows the ECU to adjust the stiffness of the engine mounts depending on how fast the engine is revving to minimize vibrations entering the cabin. It is a brilliant system but it also means that the front and rear engine mounts are more expensive than your plain rubber-on-metal mounts. I could also feel a hesitation in the car when the accelerator is depressed quickly. It would describe it as a series of thuds that would last until I eased off on the accelerator. This issue has also now been fixed.
