2nd gear is hard to shift into.
Well, I bought a 97 4 runner 4 cyl,5 speed last august off of craigslist. Naturally I have had a few issues, but one that has started to manifest it's self in cold weather.
When I start up in the morning, I have a bitch of a time getting into 2nd gear. If I take my rpms a little higher in first(3-4k) rather than 2.5k-3k before I shift from first to second, It's a little better.
I kind of have to give it some love to get it in, and when I have driven for a mile or perhaps less, I can then move through my gears with ease.
Any Ideas what might cause this?
As an aside, I get down shift into first unless I am fully stopped, but this may be unrelated, or expected behavior.
Thanks for any help.
