Hiya...Z is running great, just now that it's colder in the morning...50ish (heh heh, so Cal!)....it has a hard time getting into 2nd gear just for the first minute of driving or so. No grinding, just hard to get the shifter in place....when warms up, no prob. My old 280Z had the same prob, never fixed it...Is this something that new gear oil will help with? I heard that there was a good brand to use...any pointers? Other than that, the tranny is great....hope its this easy....advice?

Re: Common complaint...

A stiff cold shift into second is a common complaint. I have a 78 5speed that has new bearings and good synchros and have the same notchy feel into second. Redline MTF helped a bit but I once ran Mobil1 synthetic gear oil and it seemed to do a better job. YOu can pick up Mobil1 at AutoZone and give it a shot. If you are not satisfied, order some MTF.

Re: Common complaint...
