I don''t know the specifics but when was the last time you changed or checked your transmission fluid. I found that makes a big difference. Also check your shifter cable adjustments.

Otherwise, you have might have aging clutches.

The transmission fluid was the first thing I checked -- it was fine. Then I retensioned the cable, but still no improvement.

I guess it''s the clutches.

thanks
