Hi Guys,

Thanks for the ad. I am in a troubled situation at the moment. Bought a 2003 350gt from Victoria (my first 350), car got delivered today by prixcar, drove it from Minto to North Ryde, no issues at all until I noticed some significant oil spillage on my driveway. My friend bought the car four days ago for me and drove it in Melbourne, no oil issues (clean driveway). Need some urgent advice on how serious the issue can be? How can there be a spillage all of a sudden? Can someone recommend a v35 specialist mechanic? I am a bit paranoid now being a noob! The oil level was already high and I did floor the car a few times, can this be a high oil level+flooring+wrong oil type issue? Not sure what oil was used by the previous owner, and finally should i go for a 10/30 or 10/40, its a 2003 350gt with 98ks.

you need to find where it is coming from.  is it engine oil? transmission fluid? power steering?

Are you sure it is even oil?  could it be coolant, or even just AC water draining out?

I have been using 5w-30 in mine since buying it, it now has 150k km with no issue or oil consumption.

There is nothing really special about the mechanicals of this car that you need a 'V35 specialist', but maybe just look for a Nissan specialist if you like, mechanically these are identical to a 350Z.
