    dont know what year but i remember seeing that some transmissions are sealed and needed the right pressure to measure the fluid level is that just the autos? and would the Castrol syntec 75w 90 be a good oil to use ive always used and trusted castrol oils

    Couple Qts of your preferred 75w-90. You'll need a cheap pump and hose to refill and a 24mm socket (If I remember correctly). Loosen filler plug on mid section of tranny facing drivers side. Loosen drain plug on bottom of tranny. Drain. Tighten drain plug. pump in oil. Tighten fill plug. Open beer.

    Search around for full writeup.

    ok i finished changing the trans oil put castrol syntec 75W 90 and after i was done i went out for a test drive to make sure everything was ok and everything was good except when i went to shift to 3rd it started to grind for a second and i slowed down and when i got to 3rd it did it again then after awhile of riding i guess when it got warm it was fine it is not cold here like low 60s at night was wondering what could be causing this?
