    Default Heavy shift when cold

    I notice on this Vectra more than the last one that from an overnight sleep, the gearbox / gearshift is quite heavy and stiff for the first couple of changes, but thereafter it all feels light and free.

    I am guessing this is a fairly normal thing and I don't need to drop the fluids as it has done 37K only, and had a new DMF / clutch and slave (so no fluid change then I would say?) at 34K.

    Mine has only loosened up and had more slick gear changes in the last week as the temperatures got a bit better.

    Very stiff and tight in the cold weather, its been mentioned on here before as a commonly noticed thing.
