1st gear to 2nd gear grind

It seems to a little rough to 2nd gear when the car is cold. As it warms up it easier to shift to 2nd gear. Any ideas?

I think it s normal when the car is cold. Sometimes mine does that early in the morning going from 2 to 3rd but never after it s warmed up.

My 96 does this too from 1st to 2nd when its cold, easy shift and it doesnt, only when Im getting on it a little bit and its not warmed up all the way, like half throttle pulling out into traffic or something. After its warmed up it doesnt do it, maybe a couple off times but it may have been me, lol

Rough describes it best. Only when cold.

Change the fluid to 3.2 quarts of Synchromesh. But the 3650 is notorious for this, quality control issue on them from the factory. A rebuild with all the TSBs done will address this issue. Basically the TSBs are a new fork, syncrho assembly and a revised fill. I had a rebuilt 3650 that shifted like a dream, absolutly zero issues.
