Anyone have the same proplem?
I've taken it to the dealer and they say nothing wrong.
I was thinking of changing the trans. oil to synthtic Mobil 1 75-90 or 75-140
I leaning towards the 75-140 but I am not sure if I can run it.


definitely switching over to synthetic will help quieten and smooth the shifts, but im not sure between the 75/w90 and the 75w140..............im guessing the 75w90 though.

Did the switch to synthetic 75w90 mobil 1. what a difference! Feels like a completely different transmission. Shifts smoothly in all gears and no chatter!
down shifting into 1st is no problem or going into reverse.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
