The best part bout this weather is after I start the car I let the clutch out in N and the rpm's drop to like 500 for a half a second and the car lunges forward a bit! Time for me to change my fluid also. I'll have to get some for SF2K1.

Hey do you guys do anything special fluid-wise to compensate for the ccccold
weather here? I just run Mobil 1 5w-30 and that's pretty much it.....I have not had any problems shifting in the am, but it does hang up in between gears once in awhile, even when the car's warm.

I run 10w30 year round in the engine with Mobil 1 in the tranny with no problems. Shifts are a bit stiff when cold but no big deal.

Redman, you might want to check your clutch cable. I had that same problem and it was just my clutch cable out of adjustment.

I notice the same thing and my gear lube has only around 3000 miles on it.

I was thinking the clutch cable also cause I drove a j-spec se-r and the clutchwas a clutch masters st.3 and the **** jerked every gear also chirpped it to 4 th. I'll be lucky if I could chirp 2nd. centerforce dual friction ,resurfaced flywheel 20.000 miles on the clutch but it grabs way up in the pedal. I don,t even have to press the pedal all the way down to engage a gear. clutch is good though ,should it grab at the bottom for crisp jerky shifts?

Your reverse problem is very common, I've had 3 SE-R's, and thay all do it, don't worry about all that oil stuff, HERE'S WHAT YOU DO: when you go to put it in reverse, let the clutch out just a little, and it'll slide in to reverse almost by itself. It will never grind if you do it this way.
