    Hello From San Diego

    Hey Guys,
    I just got a 2002 wrx sedan and i have a question about shifting. Sometimes when i shift into first from a stop the shift lever will vibrate. My clutch pedal is to the floor so i know its not that. Any ideas on what it could be?

    woo! go team SD! I'm in Santee...Anyway to the 1st gear engagement thing, that's pretty normal on the WRX, it's just synchro wear...my 04 does it unless you shift very slow, and both my friends 02 and 03 does it, just be gentle with it...

    that's odd. doesn't seem healthy for it to vibrate so violently.

    maybe time to put some synchromax in there and service tranny fluid? it helped with mine, on the 1st gear downshift, but my 4th gear synchro is dead. Running royal purple 75w90 and 1 quart of synchromax really helped it out, and despite grinding 4th all the time, whenever I do a service (about every 20k) there is never any shavings on the magnetic plug...just an idea. know anyone with a 6spd for sale?
