Transmission questions again...

Hey all,
Sooooo just wondering if anyone else Manual trans is kinda loud. Not really hearing chatter just seems to be loud. I had the dealership check it out because my 2nd gear is fighting every other time. Asked him about the noise and he said its basically how they are.
About to do fluid service on the trans and diff but wanted to wait if i do need to have them check it out. Only 18k on the car.

Thanks for any input!

I have been hearing about redline or syncromax i will be getting either one of those for sure. I have done some hard pulls but no slamming it into gear. Even regular around town 2nd will be hesitant to go in.

I used Mobil 1 myself. I've never had much of an issue, before or after. Although it isn't super smooth until it's warm.

I use royal purple and it seems to be a lot better than factory fill. Before I swapped fluids, there would a lot of gear grinding from 1 to 2 and 2 to 3...now, only when it's cold does it grind but I have learned to shift from 1st to 4th until the transmission is warmed up. After that, its fine. It still sounds like I'm driving a truck's at low speeds. The clanking and banging is something else.

I used Royal Purple for the first couple years and it was a big improvement over stock fluid. This year I changed to Red Line.....WOW.... unreal ! Just like a new transmission.
