Ok. That effectively rules out a clogged filter. Personally, I don't go along with the theory about problems coming from new fluid, but that's just me.

I agree that Lucas additive would probably be appropriate at this point. I hope you don't wind up needing a rebuild.

I wish you the best of luck and hope you get it straightened out.
Most problems are usually something simple !
