Has the trans fluid been changed?

Both my '03 Baja and my "08 Fozzy(both MTs) get stiff to shift into 1st, 2nd when the temps get to around 30 degrees and below. Once it is warmed up it returns to normal.

Is yours auto or manual?

It was supposed to have been serviced at 70,000 ,,but you never know!!!

Is that a sign,,,,,???the hard shift when cold??

thanks,,,,,,,,, art
It could be a sign of the wrong (or perhaps simply inappropriate) transmission fluid.
