Lol. So very true. You can't touch the old Honda sportscars. They got up to like 10-12,000 rpm. Motorcycle engines.

Friends of people who take their Mustangs to Cars N Coffee hear that a lot, if you know what I mean ;).

Saw this beauty today. I've actually seen this car a few times already but this was the first chance I had to get some photos.

Awesome 370Z. Looks just like a little baby GT-R. Best looking gen of the 370Z IMO.

I'm not positive really...it sounds like it would be the transmission, but based on where the sound is coming from it doesn't make sense for that to be it

Oof. At this point it might be better to get a used car, as there would be no point in using so much money on the va when you could get a different car for the same amount.

When do you hear the sound, and what does it sound like?

For the most part it happens when passing 3k rpm, I’d say between 2700 and 3200 ish. It sounds rough/grindy. It’s pretty noticeable when accelerating, even louder when the rpm drops below 3k to shift, and loudest right when the gears disengage to shift either way. That seems like it’s obviously the transmission going, but the sound seems to be coming from in front of me and over towards the passenger side.

Any slippage? Can you check your ATF and see If it smells burnt?

I don’t know exactly what that would look/feel like, but I imagine it’d be pretty obvious so I’d say no. ATF?

I used to have an 05 STI that could cut a 10.5 in the quarter. I suffered from tinkeritis for many years then got married, a house, and kids. I still miss it some days for sure. I had a tank when I was little, but took a 2 decade hiatus. Now, I'm back with more ideas and ability to do cool things with tanks. It's relaxing and is my Zen garden of sorts.

The slip would be just that .The engine will over rev alittle you should see the tach jump .It is like the transmission lets go or looses grip[slips ].
ATF is AUtomatic Transmission Fluid ..You'll know if it smells burnt !
Check the level while your at it .
That needs to be done with engine running and van parked on level ground in park .

Lol ok, it is slipping then. Sometimes if I need to get on the gas right after slowing down it will slam itself into the lowest gear possible for that speed for like half a second before it grabs a gear that’s actually useful.
Would I be able to tell the difference between burning power steering fluid and burning transmission fluid....? We still need to get it back on a lift and see where the steering is leaking from...

Pull the ATF dip stick and sniff it !
The van could be slipping just from low fluid also ...

Supposed to be almost 60 here today so pulling the Crossfire out of the shop for spin ..:woot:

I’d be willing to bet your steering fluid is coming from your power steering pump, specifically where the hard lines go in. I would work the wheel left to right and have someone look for leakage.
If you haven’t checked your transmission fluid in awhile I would do that ASAP as coralbandit recommended. You’d be amazed how crappy an auto trans will operate when it’s low on fluid
