2004 GU seems to be developing a leak where the gearbox meets the engine.
Not dripping at this stage but just seeping.

I am also hearing a loud vibrating noise usually when driving around a corner and accelerating away. Revs drop to around 800-1000. Thinking this maybe flywheel?

I will be taking truck to nissan as I have two months left on factory warranty.
I have fitted a 3" mandrel exhaust and a cruise control. Would there be any chance these items will give Nissan a chance to void warranty on above problems

Other mods are suspension bullbar etc

Cheers Jim

not sure about your warranty being affected by mods but when I first got my gu (50000klm) I also had a grumbling when cornering and accelerating. replaced the rear diff oil (lsd oil) and grumbling dissappeared (now done 75000klm). this may or may not be a similar prob.cheers molzy

Your modifications have not opened any engine parts, they are cosmetic, to help it drive and breath better.
But be warned, some Nissan Dealers will do anything he can to get out of it. !

Try this number Site Link

At the bottom are Nissan's Phone Nos ,,

By the Way, there is another number that takes you directly to Guarantee's department, but it escapes me , and I do not know where to get it back ,,

The other thing you can do is to read your guarantee , backwards, inside out and even the right way , as it will pay you to know it

It doesn't cost the dealer anything to do a warranty job.

Worst case could be flywheel damaged/collapse which has put pressure on the input shaft on the gearbox making it leak ?
Could just be a popped clutch slave cylinder that is leaking brake fluid onto the clutch ?

Book it in if it is still under warranty and they can check it out.... much easier than diagnosing via the net.

Dont know about any others ,but the 3.0lt slave cylinder is bolted to the outside of the gearbox case .

You have probably just forked out a fair amount of cash if its still under warranty , just take it back and dont take no for an answer !
