Doesn't want to go in to second gear when cold
My car has a manual transmission.
Check the transmission fluid and see when the last time it was changed. If the fluid is original or has not been changed in a long time, then I recommend changing the fluid to remove any old debris from the oil. Then keep in mind, the transmission must be warmed up from the engine running before driving the vehicle. If the oil and temperature has no effect on the transmission, then there is an internal issue of the transmission. If you need further assistance with your vehicle not shifting into second gear, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
