VDrive / Transmission fluids question

Recommended Posts


I have a 2015 Wakesetter 23 LSV with a 5.7l Indmar Monsoon engine.  The only Malibu dealer in my area has closed so I'm doing my own maintenance this year.  Hopefully this is an easy (aka stupid) question.  Should I have both a transmission and VDrive fluid reservoir to change, or are they one in the same?  I can only locate one unit / filler under the rear seat which has a label specifying Mobil Delvac Synthetic Transmission Fluid 50.

If your 2015 is like mine, that's for the v-drive, which takes 50wt oil. The transmission dipstick is on the left side closer to the motor. (Assuming you are in the boat looking back at the motor.) It uses Dexron.
