I have a 1993 Plymouth Laser 1.8L, 4cyl, 5-speed manual transmission. I just replaced the transmission with one from a junkyard. The old transmission had a hole in the case and had lost 5th gear. The car drove well other than the fact that I didn't have 5th gear. Now, the car lurches in first and second gear when it's cold. It also lacks power in first. This only happens when the car is cold. After you drive it for about 5 or 10 miles, the lurching stops and the power is normal. The only things that have changed are the transmission and fluid. I am using the correct type and viscosity for the climate that I am in according to the repair manual. What could be causing this?
have the same problem?
