I've got a 2001 Sonoma SLS, Nice but basic, standard cab, 2.2 & standard transmission. It's my commuter and mine, not the wife's, not the kids, not the grandkids, mine. You know what I mean. It has 17K miles on it. Since it turned cold, I've noticed when I shift from first to second, it sometimes grinds, like I don't have the clutch in all the way. It only happens in this combination, not when I downshift or upshift to other gears. Only first to second, and only when the truck is moving. And, after the truck is thoroughly warmed, it operates OK. Also, if I'm sitting still, it's as smooth as silk. It's been into the shop, where it is now, three times. The dealer has replaced the shift bucket (?), checked the linkage and fluids. They are keeping it over night in hopes that it will be cold enough tomorrow so they can replicate the problem. By the time I drive there, it's warmed up and is fine. Does anyone have any ideas? The dealership has mentioned they may have to replace the transmission, which is OK, it's under warranty. But, I'm curious if anyone ever heard of a manual transmission going "bad?"
