Too Much, Too Little? IDK HELP!

Okay guys i know this is said alot, but idk why i get this jitter between first and second gear ...

I got a brand new gasket for the tranny case, filled the new ATP Type F fluid into the tranny, all the way up till it stopped coming out of the weep hole..

still getting this jitters between 1st and second gear .. do I have too much or too little ATF? I checked the gears and clutch and nothing is not damaged ..

i dont understand why this same exact problem happened before i gave it over to action yamaha, they changed the tranny fluid, and it ran fine when they gave it back to me .. pleasee help..

should I add more fluid or drain more?? THANKS

I'm guessing it's a tomos?? a-3 or a-35 or is it some other type of moped?

Type or viscosity of the transmission fluid maybe?

Re: Too Much, Too Little? IDK HELP!

ok. what color is the fluid when you drain it?

it is brown

Re: Too Much, Too Little? IDK HELP!

My Puch Magnum has a weep hole that squirts excess fluid out if you overfill it and a leveling hole.. I'm assuming that you mean the leveling hole... I would just take a ride over to Action yamaha and ask the service dudes.. there may have been a service bulletin on that tranny and if so they can tell you what to do!

Re: Too Much, Too Little? IDK HELP!

" all the way up till it stopped coming out of the weep hole.."

do you mean until it _starts_ coming out? because thats when you should stop filling it. And the fluid should be red, unless it is really old.

Re: Too Much, Too Little? IDK HELP!

well if he put the fluid in and it WAS red, and now it is sorta white or a color other than red or black... there has to be some kind of other substance such as water in the trans.

Re: Too Much, Too Little? IDK HELP!

water in the tranny could mean rust right no?

Re: Too Much, Too Little? IDK HELP!

not usually, most of the parts in the tranny won't rust. I had contaminated oil in the tranny of a moped (which was sitting for 20 odd years) and the inside looks fine.

just drained and refilled it. hunky dory.

when i fill it up, i wait until it starts coming out of the weep hole, then when it finishes coming out, thats when I put the screw back in....

im sorry, its red when it comes out, not brown
