Hi fellow Pro-ceed'ers...

i was wondering am I the only one who has a Por-ceed where the gearbox is notchy when cold? 1st can be almost impossible to re-select when cold other gears can be nothcy. When warm it's slick and smooth.

How slick is your when cold?

Mine is/was much the same (1.6crdi SW). Fine when warm, notchy when cold. I've found it is far better now with a few miles under it's belt.

It could be that the oil Kia use isn't ideal. An oil change to something better & more flexible would help and also prolong the gearbox. I get the same in the Soul, but it isn't just limited to when it is cold - 1st to 2nd crunches when hot too.

1.6 CRDi, 750 miles, from day one the gearchange was much better than the Focus it replaced, that one never improved, 1st impossible when cold, not much better when hot. The Ceed is fine when its cold, slightly notchy I guess butdoesn't baulk at all, perfect once hot. The one we tested was perfect as well.
