    What do guys think it's happening with my transmission?

    When I turn the car on and put it in 1st gear, I have a hard time making it go in smoothly. Will play with it by going to 2nd and then 1st again and, even then it'll be a little hard to put in gear but, it goes in.
    After driving the car for about 10-20 mins, goes back to normal no issues with 1st or 2nd gear for the most part. Although at times I have grinded 1st to get it to go into place.
    I've had my car for 8.5 years now and, have never done a trans flush or had any issues with it, any pointers?

    TIA

    synchro might be going...my last trans would refund me first gear when cold

        Haha, the use of the word 'refund' made me laugh out loud.

          lost a couple trannys on the m10. First synchros, hard shifting-lost 2/4th gear. Still had to drive it to school which was horrible. Had a lot of fun learning trucker shift though.

          oh and no more slow hd streaming on youtube.

                Edwin seriously just change your fluid and you'll probably be fine.

                It could be low... I can't believe you have never done it...

                            Good morning. Thinking of bringing a little houndstooth into the e34's life. Next I'll add the parking brake boot and maybe the door panel inserts after that.

                                I need to fix some floopan rust on my 77 Rabbit, it seems to be the deal breaker everytime I find a buyer. Anyone with a welder willing to help out? I have most of the tools needed except for the welding side of things.
