    hey guys just wondering if you guys have the same anoying thing happen to as i do. everytime i start my car (when cold and when warming up) it takes a while to click into reverse, or drive, i put it in gear and it takes around 1-3 seconds to click in, shouldnt it be instant or is it because the car is still cold?
    cheers lachlan

    The pump in the transmission may be on the way out. Check and smell the fluid and maybe replace if necessary.

    sounds like a worn gearbox. check fluid, make sure it's nto burnt, or dark dark dark dark red. change fluid, if that doesnt work, save up for new gearbox.
