04 VZ V6 Ute
Hi all,

I bought my first ute a couple weeks back, a 04 Vz V6 ute (auto), and I am hearing a kind of grinding / scraping noise coming from underneath the car, it usually happens as it is going through the gears (before and after gear changes usually).

Does anyone know have an idea what this noise could be, and a rough estimate of how much I can expect to pay to get it fixed??

Cheers,

Jake

check your oil in transmission, should be nice red/pink, if not get it serviced,start there

From memory my mechanic mentioned there may have been a slow leak coming from the transmission fluid, he said it was just small and nothing to worry about. It's due for it's 110,000 km service so I might book it in and mention it to the mechanic.

False alarm, turned out to be the exhaust side guards rattling, hopefully will be fixed under warranty.
