Difficulty getting into 1st gear. M5OD R1
Hi, I have a problem getting into first gear. I have had this problems for many years and have learned how to shift into 1st gear by slightly moving shifter lever to the right or by going into any other gear first.
All other gears are no problem and once I go into 1st everything is normal.
Even with engine off, all gears are easily selectable.
But now, I selling this great truck and would like to fix it.
Does anyone know of an additive that would help with this problem. I am looking for an easy, economical solution.
I have a Mazda B3000, 1994. 156,000 miles. Manual transmission M5OD R1 which uses ATF lubricant (Dexon II or Mercon III).
Also, I have used the loose shifter kit and it only lasted 1,000 miles.
