Could be your power steering line. Have you noticed any fluids getting low? Transmission, power steering or oil?
Yes- oil is getting low. Just did an oil and filter change. Leak is still there but clearly oil because the color changed with the oil change. It ends up in the little gutter under the filter but the only place I can see a hint of a leak is that hose pictured.

Looks like a brake line to me but with that oil filter where it is, you could just have used engine oil from sloppy changes if dealers did them. My Murano was proclaimed by multiple people to have a leak in axle seal at the TC. I carefully have watched and it simply isn’t leaking. My theory is that it’s sloppy ass oil changes where they got oil all over the a-arm and no telling what else, and it’s moving backward with wind and time over parts right behind it. Nothing is leaking, so what else could it be?

Disclaimer: the TC was drained, refilled, checked with oil coming out now twice, confirmed no leak. No visible leaks anywhere after being cleaned twice with shop towels.

Dealers wanted $2000 to reseal the TC.

Be very, very careful with fluid leaks on the front end of these Nissan 3.5 vehicles. Think it through.

OP- probably need to remove the splash guard under the engine and clean everything. Then start engine and let it idle for a while and look for the leak. You could also add UV dye if you have a black light. Driving around with even a small leak can get oil all over the place making it hard to pinpoint the source.

Helpful tip on the UV dye. I never heard of that. I do have a blue light. Will give it a shot.
Thank you!
