ok, i'm enjoying the hell out of my '87 328GTS, an am wowed by the responsiveness of the chat participants - sooooo -- here's today's question. i have learned that you cannot engage 2nd gear until the tranny is warmed up, and to shift directly into 3rd gear. but why??? why won't it shift into 2nd if there is lube in there? why just 2nd gear - whether it is up or down? whynot the other gears? what is special about 2nd gear?
