Hmmm, less heat=less friction,
less friction=syncros not synchronizing as fast as they used to,
syncros not...=need for friction modifier.
I wonder what Redline puts in their "blend"?

Different tranny, same basic principles apply. Yeah, and second gear is
pain when cold in my Contour. I had similar prob. with my truck when cold.
Actually it was worse, but double clutching worked well. It's fixed on my
truck. I went from gear lube to w30 motor oil. The guy at the
transmission shop told me to use the lighter oil.
