Usually it is the viscosity of the oil and synchros wearing.
Try replacing the gear oil with something like Castrol VMX 80.It is specially formulated for this cold shift problem.
I hope this helps solve your problem.

When i get in my jimmy to go to work its blowing hot air( with the heater on of course) and then there is a creaking noise coming from the blower motor area, then the heater will start blowing cold air...


Because the Main Gear in the Blend Motor has cracked or teeth have chipped and is now not keeping the heat/cold door to the Hot position. 3 fixes: Buy a new Blend motor, takes about 5mins to replace. Buy a new Blend Motor Gear, will take about 30mins to fix. Repair current gear with Epoxy, takes about 30mins and 12hrs for the glue to set up strong enough to use it.

I have a Volvo P0700 code , P0740 code. when the transmission is cold it works ok, when it gets hot it shifts hard and will lock in a gear/


OK allot of people don't under stand transmission because they think a transmission is complicated.
When the fluid is cold it is thick and can't move as fast and can't build pressure as fast as hot transmission fluid. There are small 1/16 holes in the Valve Body that the fluid has to pass through and Valve that get ***** out from allot of use. When a valve ware and fluid can go through the space that it couldn't before when it was new and the differences of hot and cold fluid makes a big differences. The fluid can move passed the valve and into the accumulators that operate the shift mechanism. So that why it shifts good when it's cold and hard when it's hot. Might be a sticky valve or shift solenoid or just need rebuilt. In the past if i had trouble like this and had to rebuild the transmission before i did that i would put a can of thick STP motor oil Treatment in the transmission because it thickens up the transmission fluid and make my car shift like new. Its not going to hurt nothing it mixes well with the transmission oil.

Manual transmission (rebuilt in 2006) works great in summer. Can't hardly get in in gear in cold weather (20-40 deg F). can't push the clutch far enough through the floorboard -heh. Does it need lower V...


It sounds more like you have a problem with your hydraulic clutch. First of all, are you using brake DOT-3 fluid in it, or any special fluid Toyota recommends for your clutch? Second of all, have you had your clutch bled correctly? Finally, using a tad lighter viscosity fluid may help a bit if everything else where right, but if the clutch isn't disengaging, then no, it won't matter. Find out what's wrong, or if you've just got a crazy sticky clutch (EG, if you haven't driven much since the rebuild)

My 2001 venture van rear air is blowing hot air


often on the vans with rear air the air dor acuator goed bad and can no longer switch from hot to cold. also the swich itself will often go bad. this can be caused by sticky fingers damaging the inside of the switch. sometimes a good cleaning in warm water will fix a sticky switch

Transmission won't shift to second when cold


Change transmission fluid you may have a clogged/sticky valve body in transmission and that will restrict flow of fluid and pressure when cold. Check Fluid level before.. check wen vehicle is hot and running on flat surface. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Hello monkzero0 I will explain what the problem happens during the hot season while it works very well during the cold season as it happens. 3 aucra we have 92 in the same family and all the same problem...


I have a sticky gear shifter in my automatic 1992 as well. Cut an extra set of keys and use the "shift lock bypass" on the gear selector in really cold weather. A redneck solution, but it's kept my car rolling trouble free for two winters of commuting 700km/week in the snow.

Sticky manual transmission


There are 2 plugs on the tranny. Lower drain plug, and upper fill plug. Fluid is inserted thru the upper plug (after taking it out) until it starts coming out.
