Hey guys I hope I'm posting in the right forum.

I have a 2009 skyline v36 370 gt. and it started giving me some problems.

1.Inside the interior started to get hot where the pedals are located.

2. it would make ticking sounds.

3(here is where the problem accelerated im not sure all of this is connected. I was riding on a hill and accelerated then as I accelerated my car could not Drive up the hill my rpms were at about 3-4 regular speed but it couldn't do it.

I parked it pushed in reverse and drive it moved.... but as I drove off it sounded like the engine was working but straining at the same time but I was unable to move regularly. 

I left it parked up for about 2 days trying to find a mechanic. Found one he ran a diagnostic test on it. the test code p0734 came up.... He told me it may need fluid, solenoid may need to change and some other details..

 

But we let the car run at idle to see if any more scans would appear... nothing showed we took it for a drive for about 15 mins, the car seemed fine as if the problem never happened.

\Does anyone know what could be the problem?

Auto transmissions are full of witchcraft and bullshit. Take it to an auto specialist with the story.

The code is definitely transmission related but if it seems OK now, perhaps it was a sticky solenoid. Either way, as GTSBoy suggested, take it in to an auto transmission specialist, preferably one who knows these Nissans reasonably well.

I don't know how easy or difficult it is to take out the valve body and check the components within, including solenoids but in light of what you experienced and the nature of the error code, it's definitely worth doing in case the fix is cheaper than a rebuild. Don't let it linger for too long, even if it is seemingly OK again now.

Best advice given I appreciate it. Its just that im located in The Bahamas and finding a good mechanic is really looking for a needle. in a haystack. Everyone is looking out for their pocket so they may tell me anything just to get the job. Ive been doing research about the ATF Fluid and from what I gather only the Nissan metic s fluid is what's best to use. Funny thing is no store on the island has it! 

aw man so im ordering a case and parking her up until I can get the fluid and hopefully find a good mechanic in that space of time

Bugger. You've got it pretty tough over there, eh?

Good idea to stay off the road until you can get it looked at properly though. You don't want to strip more life off the transmission than it may already have. Good luck mate.
