Hi

I have a 2010 Kia Cee'd LS CRDI, which I bought 2nd hand in August last year.

Every so often I can't get it to go into 2nd when shifting up from 1st.  Have to come off the clutch then re-engage and try another couple of times before it will go in.

Strangely, this only seems to happen when cornering or on roundabouts, which is not the ideal time for this to happen.  Has anybody else had this issue or can anyone suggest a possible cause?  Thanks.

Have you checked the fluid level. This can happen when cornering or braking as fluid moves.

Is that the clutch fluid at the rear left of the area under the bonnet? It's near the max and a light brown colour. Will I benefit from getting it replaced? Thanks.

Brown is showing it needs replacing.
