Transmission slip

I own a 2004 Rincon and just changed the motor oil using Mobil 1 0W-30 as suggested by the dealer. I happened to use the "Advanced Fuel Economy" edition. Is this why I am experiencing transmission slip when it is cold? The problem just started since I began using this oil.

Chances are YES, thats why it is slipping. Be sure to use JASO MA spec. oil in your rincon. I suggest 5w40 rotella oil. synthetic, and flows well in the cold temperatures.

rincon slip

I was having the same problem for years, until by accident my 14 year old son accidently put a quart of automatic transmission fluid in the oil fill and now it works perfect. he thought the dipstick tube was engine oil and the oil fill was transmission fill.
