yes, calls for pennzoil dexron II/III in the manual. The colour has never been red (2nd full season with the boat) and it's never changed in colour over those 2 years.

Certainly due for a change. Just need someone to chime in if this is one of the transmissions that benefits from using motor oil vs. the designated transmission fluid.

Thanks TMMC! Yeah, I am really confused now as I specifically asked the dealership that does the winterization to check the trans fluid last fall and they told me it was clean and good. From the research I've done seems pretty straight forward to change myself this weekend.

Check the cutlass bearing. A worn bearing will cause noise/vibrations at slow speeds that become inaudible/less noticeable at speed.

strange that they switched to motor oil not ATF - that tranny definitely calls for ATF.

I believe it was because the trans fluid was thin enough that there was some rattling sounds heard. The oil, being thicker, prevented this.

I remember putting 20W-50 Valvoline in my old 79 F150 with 160,000 miles on it just to have adequate oil pressure during it's last summer.

Not sure what Hurth was thinking. Transmission fluid is a better lubricant than motor oil. One would think they understood tolerances.......

Not sure. I have Dexron III in my boat which calls for Type F trans fluid and mine works just fine.
