Hi all, I recently bought a 2008 Kia Ceed 1.6 diesel.
I have done the master cylinder mod. So the clutch is much better.
The gears are a little on the stiff side when it is cold. The problem gear is second. Very stiff when going up. Dreadful when coming down. Just about acceptable when it is warm. Can anybody advise?
Perhaps linkage, adjustments. Should I use a local garage or a gearbox specialist?
Kind regards Red

My 2009 ceed 2.0 diesel has always been stiff going into 2nd when cold, when it was under warranty Kia dealer said most were like it and it will bed in, after 102,000 miles still the same. Only thing I found that did improve 2nd gear when cold was having the gearbox oil changed with Shell gearbox oil (Spirax), once driven for a few minutes never have a problem with any gear, also never have a problem in summer.
