Hey guys, just got a few questions I was hoping you could help me with. K, two questions:
1) If I havent driven my car for a few hours, I notice that shifting in to 2nd gear can be difficult. , especially when it is cold. When the car is fully warmed up howeve, the shifting is much smoother. Is this most likely a transmission fluid problem? I am sure that there are no major leaks (it is a 20 year old car), but would a synthetic tranny fluid make for smoother shifting at colder temperatures?
2) This is kind of strange... If I have my heater on (any speed / setting), and I take a right hand turn, like at an intersection, I hear a grinding noise, coming from the top of the dash near the drivers side, so right in front of me. This only happens when I take right hand turns, and only when I have my heater turned on.
Thanks for the help.
By the way, while Im posting, check out this. I guess its a BMW M3 GTR... Damn its fast! VIDEO - RIGHT CLICK SAVE AS
