The trans has never been out of the car to my knowledge and the shifter isnt sloppy at all. All other gears and kickdowns are firm but a little delay when shifting into reverse.
joe p can you plz explain "124's put the manual valve into 1st when placed in first. (carryover from the 2nd gear start cars)"
Haasman,I took it to my trans guy yesterday and he increased the pressure via the bowden cable and this seemed to help alot.
Hardly anymore slipping when car is warm but the same when the car is cold.
When cold,it will shift to 1st no problem.Any suggestions?
