Thumbs up

Thanks Boncovi and everyone else for the responses.

I will probably replace the tranny fluid myself in the upcoming weeks and will also remove the CDV if its there since its all at the same location. Props to the madrussian.
Worst case scenario is that none of these things will resolve the issue and will eventually lead to the clutch replacement which is the last thing i want to do right now.

After that is all done i will let you know what happened with the 1st and second gear shifting...

Thanks for help!

I have this same issue with my car both when it had the OEM trans fluid and after changing to Motul (car has 32K miles). But once everything is up to operating temp, it shifts real smooth.
