My Ride: 328i
manual tranny help

Hey guys/girls , I have a 1999 328i which runs perfectly but for some reason , everytime I do a complete stop , Im having a little bit of a problem putting it in 1st gear. I have to play the stick first before I can shift it and usually takes me 2 to 3 seconds to do that. I live in boston and if you dont go once the light turns green , people behind you will start blowing their horns.

BTw, shifting from 1st to 2nd is not as smooth as silk like it used to before.

You guys are experts , Im pretty sure you understand what Im talking about.


Thanks for your time

Age. Give it a blip of accelerator just before your shift.
