    Which would come with a minor increase in highway mpg, and a moderate reduction in noise on the highway in 5th. Both worth it.

    I like savagegeese reviews. Funny and fair. Watch the one on PT Cruiser if you get a chance.

    Ok, so it will have a new, non-slipping clutch. Not sure that will fix the issue of not wanting to go into first gear. I would think if the clutch were the cause, it would have issue going into all...

    Alrighty then. I stick by my theory of "it's physics/transfer of energy", but I shall quietly watch for another explanation. So far I like Fummins theory, but he hasn't explained where he got the...

    With an automatic transmission, when in gear, the drive wheels are connected to the engine via the transmission. So, even if you take your foot off the accelerator, with enough decline, gravity and...

    I use the 0W-20, but I'm all about the most mpg, which I think that oil does best in lower engine friction/resistance. But many on here run 5W-30 with no problems. Was just curious about your...

    Shifter cable has stretched after 289,189 miles? Wouldn't show visible damage, but may be stretched enough to not allow that shift into first gear.

    Yeah, he's a salesman for his brand. Loud, obnoxious... telling you what to think from his opinions...the automotive equivilant of Bill Nye the science guy.
