This is because first gear is only used for starting off, and generally over ~8-10 mph you'll be in second. Transmission, Clutches, Shifters - 1st gear really hard to get into - So what's the trick with these cars? I changed the tranny fluid to redline mt90 and verified the other day that the level is to the top of the fill hole. I've had an annoying problem ever since I got my car. Excessive spin down time is more noticeable when shifting into reverse. All the gears work, nothing grinds, it stays in 5th, it's just difficult to get it into 3rd gear. The R380 gearbox in my 300 tdi DefenderDiscovery has recently started ‘blocking’ when I shift from 5th to 4th, to get 4th gear I have to nudge 3rd then it will drop into 4th no problem. Is there an override for the shifter so I can start the thing?. 11 gears great on the street. It's very difficult to put it into 1st 2nd and 3rd gears. Re: allison transmission problem: Ron Brandow: 7-26-16 : My 03 H/R 34' Motor home with 800 workhorse and allison trans. Now you can image how happy this customer was. Also, when I shift the gear from neutral to drive the light on the gearbox selector is placed somewhat halfway between neutral and drive so both are somewhat lit? Is that got something to do with it but that was always the case and the gear sticking /hard to shift is a recent problem? PLEASE HELP!!!!! Can anyone help??. I have to apply a lot of force to get past this resisting gate, and it feels like i'm going to break something after doing it for a while. like in mine the low or granny first is hard to get into. Very hard to get into first gear and grinds when put into reverse after driving for 20+ minutes? I have a 1997 Suzuki Vitara JLX model. Reverse is the toughest and I often have to get it into a forward gear, roll the truck a couple inches forward, and then grab reverse quick. Have had a quick look at the access to the gearbox bellhousing to engine bolts. I also have resistance going into 1st gear, but it's not as bad.
