When I put it into Fwd or Reverse after say, a week of inactivity, there is a rattly noise
for a few seconds. Back to Neutral, then Fwd again, and it's OK.
Seems that maybe it is losing oil
somewhere, and once the pump has started up, it's OK.
As I am in Japan
(Naha) and about to visit many small islands with smaller harbours, I don't want to find myself stuck somewhere with no means of repair.
I changed the oil
the other day (red ATF) but it has made no difference.
Or do I just put it in Fwd every morning?
