Oil and transmission fluid changed. Investigated creaking noise from the suspension - no play in any components so hard to say. Fords for your time.
Anyone else have an impossible time checking their oil level? The dip stick in the G35 goes in on an angle and it’s guaranteed to smear on its way out. Cannot get a good reading so had to measure how much oil drained out. Shit like this is why a 1-hr job ends up taking way more. Regarding suspension: Creaks at low speed going over small bumps. Forums say it’s not the strut/shock itself but I went over all the joints and boots and nothing is torn and there’s no play. I will be replacing the struts in the future anyway but not sure if it’ll fix the noise.
