    Define 'skating'.

    What colour is the fluid - red or brown?
    Is it leaking?

    Have you tried reseting the auto by disconnecting the battery? Welcome to the site by the way, hope you can get your new ride sorted out.

    yeah, broken torque converter. I had this in my white VR-4 when I picked it up.

    Just say "broken torque converter" to the mechanic.

    yes, most likely the differential, change the oil and it will go away.

    when my mates transfer case went i thought it was the rear diff. but i put the chassis ears on it and found it was the trasfer cas. the noise resonated through the drive shaft and made it sound like a dif problem

    I still think that you need to get your gearbox looked at first.
