Re: [DML] Trouble shifting in 1st and 2nd gear

I was going to suggest the cross cable as well. I had the first/second shift problem intermittently back in 1983 when I bought my car. If you don't adjust it and try to force it, the pivot bolt in the shifter can break. I now have over 50,000 miles and haven't had a problem since 1983.
