View Full Version : Transmission Trouble in my '01 X-Star

01-30-2012, 02:03 PM
I would like some opinions on what could be causing my transmission oil to be turning pink. I know it is getting water in somehow. Also it uses transmission oil. I have transmission oil residue in my center ski locker also. Is this a common problem? I just bought this boat a year ago. It is my first boat and the MC dealer I purchased it from said that the transmission seals were replaced a year ago. Any suggestions?

As far as the water getting in your transmission I suggest you look at the transmission cooler. It probably has a pin hole leak in it and water is getting in that way.

A radiator shop can pressure test the cooler if you remove it and bring it to them.

If you need a replacement skidim has them or obviously the mc dealer.
