Hi My 03 Suzuki xl-7 has a delay going into gear when it is first started car has to be running for at least thirty minutes or so to be able to shift from one gear into another. For example when I start my car for the first for the day and put it into drive I have to wait at least 3 to 5 minutes for it to go into drive. If I remove the car from that gear and put it back there will be a delay again. Now once car has been driven for awhile there is no problem moving from one gear to a next. Example I can stop to reverse and there is no delay. But if car is shut off and I presume the engine gets a little cool the delay returns. I was told that the synchronizer is going bad, I was told that the car is building up enough pressure. I was told that I just need a tune up and to change the transmission filter. So far I have given the car a full tune up change the oil and transmission fluid and the filters the delay was less but it was still there. Please help. I am think of resorting to rebuilding the transmission but I really don't think thats the problem.
