I have a problem with my golf 4 gti 1.8t....when it's cold it doesn't change gears I always have to wait and warm it up.... Once it's hot it will change the gears normal.


Hello Bongs,

Not an uncommon complaint...varied VW models (and German cars in general) are known to be hard to shift when cold.

Less-than-stellar 1-2 syncros? Zero tolerance build specs?

Some people have reported double clutching helps..some have suggested moly additives..others have suggested changing the gear oil to synthetic. Give your local VW dealer a call and inquire about any additives they recommend for your hard shifting GTi.

2001 hyundai elantra goes in2 reverse but won't go backwards all other gears r perfect


Most automatic transmissions have a separate belt for reverse and all forward gears, The reverse belt is commonly lighter duty that the forward belt (some Chryslers were affected so much it was advised to not shift into reverse until the engine had warmed up and the automatic choke idled down) Thus your car would be in "reverse" but with no motion getting to the gears.

the selecter rods are not in the right position you may have turned gearbox drive shaft when locating new clutch sorry your going to have to take selecter mechanism off and by a bit of trial and error reposition until you can select all gears

My caravan fails to find reverse unless it it warm


get the electronics checked and get the transmission a full diagnosis. it could be mechanical failure because when metal heats, it expands and it could be that some solenoids arent working properly until theyve expanded
