Is this a known problem? when the gearbox is cold its very notchy. On the older toyota boxes we use redline MT90 which normally helps.. but can i do this on the avensis?

Possibly just my clutch early warning signs though..

anyone else got it?

Not having the same model, I can't comment directly, but your suggestion of the clutch is worth checking out. What's the milage, and when was the clutch last sorted?

hi charlie.. nope its 2nd and 3rd.

Redline MT90 is the stuff to use... its what we put in the supra boxes to help the second gear problem.

I was just woindering if this was a common fault or it is indeed something to do with my clutch.. although the clutch itself appears fine.

Hey guys, i know its an old threa but my old mans got a 1.8 VVTi GS Saloon, on a X plate, he's having trouble with the gearbox, especially from 1st to second, you've mentioned redline MT90 previously, can you guys suggest any others please? Thanks.

yeah my (02) SR is the same from 1st to 2nd gear when cold, most cars i have ownd are the same when cold just the avensis seems to warm up quicker! Dont think its a clutch prob as i had an avensis 18 vermount (52) plate b4 with 20k on the clock and this was the same! i find mine runs alot smoother if i let the motor idel for 5 mins after starting when cold.

hope this helps.

:unsure:
