Trouble shifting into second gear


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I recently purchased an '00 C2 Cab with 35k miles on it. For some reason, when the car is cold, it's really hard to shift into second gear. The problem doesn't happen all the time - just sometimes.

I flushed my tranny fluid and it helped a little bit, but it just feels like there's a notch when I'm shifting to second. It's definitely not as smooth as when I shift into 4th or anything. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Do either of you have the short shifter fitted to your cars ?

Nope, I don't have a short shifter. My car is completely stock.

I do have a B&M on mine. I spent an entire night driving and dialing it in thinking something could have slipped up but all the gears are fine cept 2nd.

Possibly too many race starts ramming it into 2nd gear over the years has worn the 2nd gear syncro. Causing baulking when trying to change gear, usually starts with getting hard into gear when cold & gets better as car warms up.

Well I know the car was more then likely sported before I got it. But I could not pass on it due to all the money invested in it and it had everything I wanted. I talked with the guys at Imagine Auto and it was said that 2nd gear is troublesome with 911's up to 02, 6spd's that is. So I'll just try the fixer repairs and keep looking for a replacement. Thanks
