Here's how to test the transmission to see if it's an oil problem or a *transmission* problem:

Safely raise all 4 tires up off of the ground with jackstands, apply throttle from first to 3rd (I did this in a dealers shop one time) and if it shifts 'smooth' you probably have weak brake bands or they need adjusted..BUT if it shifts hard or *BANGS* (no load) while shifting, it's definitely the oil is bad. (Even if it looks good)
Hello RisingPhoenix, it is really hard for me to believe that, after such a long time and all this mysteriousness, the cause of my problem could be so trivial
Maybe all the time, I can't see the forest for one tree

Exactly Filip,

Good thing that on two counts you have resisted being told how to suck eggs. LOL

Take heart that whatever the outcome, the thread has enabled you to practice your second language and your posts indicate that you should have no qualms in this respect.

Cheers Trevor, you are good guys here. My decisions were not always best, but its mainly because i underestimated preparations before buying. But if i would have been prepared, i wouldn't start this topic and language skill would decay.
