when you say it felt like you had a flat tire
was it making noise like a flat? or pulling to one side?
or did it simply just feel like a loss of power?
no loss of power, felt like left hand side of car, noise like a flat
did it sound kind of like a card in bicycle spokes?
assuming you did that as a child lol
if the noise resembled the sound of an old diesel truck or a card in bicycle spokes like i mentioned
it could be as simple as a fuel damper on its way out
which was fairly common on the early muranos
as long as your not feeling a loss of power when you hear the noise, i don't think it's CVT related like i have seen in the past with similar noises.
let me know if you have further questions please
sorry, had to disapear for a min!, yes it sounded like a bike card, and yeah i had one lol
in that case i would check the fuel dampers before anything else.
there are 2 on this engine befor ethe fuel rails
ok, is it safe to drive?
yes you should be fine
generally what i have seen with these is over time they will gradually get worse
until you hear it EVERYTIME you accelerate
but it won't really effect your driving at all
ok, will do that and see how she goes, thanks
