  1. Do as previous replier and check the security light. If not it may be the camshaft sensors, they sometimes throw a code, sometimes not (this happened to my v35).
  2. I've had a few enquiries but cannot modify original post, so for clarification... Car is currently registered but will be sold in an unroadworthy/unregistered condition/without plates. This is due to cage and parts removed. A receipt will be provided. Thanks for looking.
  3. Bumpo. Looking to move this car on, reducing price to $8000 cash. Perfect for circuit folks looking for something with a cage, or N/A people looking for turbo manual conversion.

    I have a 2004 v35 sedan with 6mt, 160km odo, I'd say it hasn't been treated well in the past. My vq35de consumes oil, so each week I check the dipstick, probably a 1-1.5mm every two weeks. The transmission is rough, vibrating, noisy, hates the cold, not half as good as my 98 r34 gtt 5 speed manual. Wear and tear items like the front suspension arm bushes, rear diff bush, clutch, engine hoses, cam sensors, radiator, rear wheel bearings needing replacement. +'s the handling is superior to the r34 and I can see out the windows unlike a coupe and modern cars :)

    What software are you using? nisprog?
  7. First thing I'd do is get a code reader to check for any error codes. Workshop or ebay.

  9. The problem was there after the botched clutch install and now after new clutch install. The second workshop checked only trans mount, but I'll check all mounts. I suspect the exedy clutch kit wasn't balanced, but lets see if the mounts are ok. Interesting that an importer (not the importer of the car) said it's normal, hmm, pretty rough compared with my long throw vibration-free r34 gearbox.
  10. I'm bringing this back from the dead, hoping someone may be able to help. I have a recent purchase 2004 v35 sedan 6mt with the load vibration/knock/rattle noise on acceleration but not cruise or deceleration in all rpm/all gears. I replaced the oem dmf clutch with a locally sourced exedy uprated clutch/npc smf kit - NSK-7454SMF, I use Castrol VMX-M 75W-85 transmission fluid. The first clutch install was botched by a local gtr specialist workshop (it made the noise then), a new clutch was fitted along with my dad/I replacing the important input and output shaft bearings in the CD008 gearbox before reinstallation by another workshop. After the new clutch install I still have the same acceleration vibration as before. The pedals/gear knob vibrate badly with the accompanying rattle/knocking noise. I took the car to a car importer familiar with v35s and he said it was normal for the CD008, and that the CD009 was as better transmission. I have listened to videos and don't believe it's rod knock or knock from bad fuel, the diff bush is flogged so will be replacing that soon. Any ideas or 350z/v35 experts in melbourne who may be able to help diagnose please let me know.

    That is an unhappy dash. Hence why I'm trying to find a dash mat for my v35 sedan. May be worthwhile finding a good used one from a wrecker.
  12. Tried a few places in Australia and dash designs in US, but haven't heard back or nothing available. Anybody have something either direct fitting or trimming required. Thanks.
  13. Thanks, koyo oe replacement is probably the go. I read the thicker race radiators in some cases don't fit without trimming and changing to slimmer fans which is even more expensive.
  14. Just purchased a v35 manual sedan as my daily. It has a few little issues I need to address before roadworthy. Such as engine belts needing replacement, creaky clutch noise from the bell housing and leaking plastic end tank radiator. So ... I'm looking for a replacement radiator, preferably alloy, good chinese/ebay $300 jobbie, not koyo/pwr $700 jobbies as its just my daily. Anyone buy anything that's held up well or should I buy a koyo plastic end tank replacement. Plenty of 350z ones on ebay, but top tank is the other way around Thanks.
