    Acura ILX 2.4 Manual - notchy shifter?

    Hi all... After driving my ILX for a couple weeks, the shifter seems notchy sometimes. How smooth is yours? I'm wondering if I should take it to the dealership or not.

    Does it ever create a grinding sound or failure to go into gear with pedal fully depressed?

    There has been a couple times where it didn't want to go all the way into 1st, but moving to 3rd then back to first resolved.

    Go back to the dealer while you can. They had problems like this with the 8th generation civic transmissions. Made headlines.

    A solution many 8th gen civic and honda guys swear by is Amsoil Synchromesh MTF or GM Synchromesh.

    The problems seem to have gotten slightly more frequent (both the somewhat rough shifter and the 1st gear issue). I have an appointment to take it to the dealership tomorrow.

    The actual shifting seems great, but the feel of the shifter does not.

    That's exactly what I did at about 17K miles. I had no more grind issues. I also found that my tranny was over filled from the factory.
