On cold mornings the shifts on my truck are a lot harder. Doesn't want to easily slide into gear like it usually does. Also makes a noise when in 2nd gear, especially when letting off the gas, that I usually don't hear. After a few minutes it drives normally. Has anyone else noticed this or is this a potential problem with my particular truck. Thanks.

I have noticed the difficulty in shifting in the cold. I have not heard the noise in second, but that may be because I usually have the radio on. I will listen later today.

Definitely Notchy Shifting when temps are below freezing!

Almost have to force it into gear for the first few miles, but once it warms up, just a little bit, all is fine. :)

Mine does it too! I live about 35 miles from winchester va. and it's been cold here too. My truck shifts really hard when it is cold, and also makes a noise when you let off of it. I just never thought any more about it. I figured it just had some really stiff transmission fluid or something. Because like you say, it quits when you get it warmed up. Don't know man! Don't think it is a problem, but if it is, I hope its nothin major.

Some of the other guys like 9 seconds or boomer may know but changing to sythetic tranny fluid should help, if it does not already have it.

I have a feeling the Hydraulic Clutch Fluid is the culprit. Maybe that Motul Hydraulic Fluid flows better in cold temps? Anybody know?

The two of my trucks with Motul fluid shift easier when cold. It was 34 here this morning. I cranked them all up moved them around. Had some chatter in reverse from 2 of them. But no real problem. The 05 definately has better detent springs. I love the RPS clutch too.

Yeah wasn't sure, I'll check tommorrow. I know when I worked the dealership, in small and big trucks, and some cars, when they came in complaining of noisy or hard shifting, when drained out the old and installed synthetic and 90% were satisfied. Trans shifted smoother and not as noisy.

Smooth shifts and no noise..........so far.

My biggest problem is that when driving my truck, I totally lose control of my feet. As much as I try to resist it, my left foot pops the clutch and my right foot presses even harder on the gas. Coincidentally, whenever this happens to my feet, my face grins uncontrollably. Does anyone else have this problem?

You're right. I just talked to my doctor. He said the only treatment is to apply large amounts of gasoline.
