oblivion007 Shift down to first while you're rolling the stop. If you take a look at how the tranmission works you'll see why. They prefer to shift while rolling rather than from a stand still. If not hold the clutch in rev the engine a little like 1.5-3k rpm just don't over shoot it a lot and shift down.

Doesn't Want to Shift into First

2007 10K miles resists downshifting into first from second. Coming to a stop I engine brake down into second. After the stop, I try to shift into first to get rolling again, but it's taking 3 or 4 tries before it'll go. I have to really kick it down or start (jerkily) in second. Just had clutch plates replaced due to "excessive glazing" per my mech. Any thoughts?
