Transmission Fluid Anomolies
I love my 225 Maristar more than anything. This 1998 has run perfect since I bought it 3 years ago. I keep up on all the maintenance and will do whatever it takes to keep my beast in great running condition.
Recently, I found an excessive amount of transmission fluid in the hull. I checked the level of the transmission fluid which seemed to be ok and the math of how much fluid was in the hull to how much was missing from the transmission did not seem to be adding up.
I went out this 4th of July weekend and wakeboarded to my hearts content. Monday, I checked the transmission fluid and it was - VERY LOW, and more fluid was in the hull. I again pumped all fluid out of the hull and the transmission preparing for a full transmission flush.
Before I finish the flush (put new fluid in) - what could be causing this, engine runs clean, but I am doing a full overhaul, new transmission fluid, new oil and filter, and new plugs and cables this Thursday.
I am also replacing the oil cooler as I was told to. Is this the right course of action ... Could it be anything else ... Does anybody have suggestions for the best plugs & cables, transmission fluid (ie, synthetic?) and Oil and filther (again Synthetic?).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
