2001 maristar questions shifting

Is the transmission all mechanical,hydraulic or hydrastitic? Should the boat go in gear when it is not running?

The prop will turn when the boat is on the trailer and in neutral most times. ... in the water the load from the water will keep it from turning.

Thanks mike, when on the trailer should the prop turn easy by hand?

Yes, in neutral or in gear the prop should turn by hand. If the driveline is well adjusted, it can be a one-finger turn; if not, a one- or two-handed turn isn't unheard of.

Low transmission fluid level?
Perhaps the transmission oil cooler froze over the winter, and the fluid leaked out.

Someone pulled out the neutral knob on the shifter and it didn't pop back into place?
