1st to 2nd gring and reverse issues

So 3 months ago I swapped my 02 3.8 liter auto to a 2000 gt Drivetrain (motor, wiring, t-45, 8.8, etc).1). When I shift from 1st to 2nd fast (mainly when it is cold) it grinds a little), however when I granny shift it doesn't. Could tahis mean the syncro is bad between 1st and 2nd? It doesn't seem to occur when I downshift or when it's warm, but I don't know.

2). Reverse on a T-45. Hard to find sometimes for my car and not sure why. I've heard you need to depress the brakes to hit reverse in T-45s too but not sure.

Any help appreciated

Re: 1st to 2nd gring and reverse issues

my old GT did the same thing...it was a syncro issue. i'd reccomend draining the fluid and refilling with some syncro mesh if you didn't use it this last time. it's not a fix but it really does help the issue...at least in my t3650

Yeah the reverse gear in my car is hard to find, I have the t-45. I need to have my foot of the brake and I usually put it in fifth and then reverse. I don't know what to say about your second gear
