Hey Gerry, i forgot to mention that when it happens I hear a scratching noise if this helps. When the gears go down till a full stop, the first gear isn't engaging fast enough, and the u go, the car revs but almost no motion, then it makes this scratching noise if u keep ur foot on the gas, and then it selects the first gear with a normal clunck due to taking off with gas out of a sudden, but I know how to avoid all this now, when it revs with no actual gear selected, I take my foot off the gas pedal, stop, then gas it again, and it will shift properly!
Is it the fluid not going fast enough to engage the first gear fast enough? Help Gerry thanks in advance buddy!!
