synthetic oil

I am not sure this helps but I had the hard first shift and the nice 2nd-3rd flair when cold especially frustrating when merging. I put in synthetic oil and new filter this weekend and the hard shift is better anf the flair is gone. I think I will adjust the vacuum on the hard shift to see if I can get that smoothed out.
hope this helps you.
