    firstly its cold out there so gearbox oil will be more viscous in this weather

    more importantly

    150's tend to have more gearbox oil than they need

    i reduced mine from 3.4l to 2.4l over year ago

    been better ever since and its also a VX field remedy from TIS

    otherwise check alignment of gear selector from HOW 2 list F40 Box
