Any suggestions?

yes, a big one -- before you ruin your clutch plates read the API service circle on the back of the can and tell us what it says. also, what weight is the oil?

after i made the post i did a search. Lots of good info. This oil is syntec 5w-50 and is not EC. Comparing specs to the mobil one red cap, looks the same except the viscosity. :cry:
