Well since we aren't that mean, you have the potential of blowing out the seals.

Eric; It's good to learn about about your boat and DIY, but guess the warning is know you mechanical limits. Even though I winterize I wouldn't change transmission fluid yet. I'll also be learning this year or have my dealer do that. Didn't you check the fluid when you bought it? What makes you think there is a problem to change it?

I am not going to change it, just getting some knowledge. I checked the dipstick, and it is reading alittle low, so I was going to add some to be on the safe side.

For fluid and seal changes, it will go to the dealer. probably chicago mastercraft.

Mmmm, Steak & Shake. I remember that drive to FL.

As for the fluid change, just think of it this way. If the English major can do it, you can, too. Like Mark and Brian said, get a pump, and put in the exact amount you removed.
