I have a '79 Mastercraft and the last two times out my tranny seemed to be slipping--my fluid was a little low and foamy so I added all new tranny fluid Pennzoil Dexron-III/Mercon ATF and when I went from neutral to forward it seemed fine but going neutral to reverse it started squeaking really bad almost as if it was going to freeze up(worse than it was before). Did I added the wrong ATF? What should I do?

What kind of tranny fluid does everyone put in their boat?

I don't have any good ideas... but - around here, tranny means something different than transmission. I have to say - I almost fell over reading your title! :uglyhamme

You put the right oil in there. you may want to try and flush it out and add some fresh oil.
