You may have old / wrong fluid in the trans.
Does it seem hard to get into 1st ?

yeah i little its mostly just a little tough downshifting, but it does have origional fluid i would imagin, i only had the truck for a year and a half now, while were on the subject of trans fluid, do you think you can drain the auto trans fluid they used for lub and put gear lub in instead?
