It maybe fine if you are just putting around town. But when you beat on it is when the problems show up. I ran gm synchromesh for a few years and when I had to have it rebuilt the syncros where gone.

I know this is an old thread, but this statement that the tranny gets better when warm, caught my attention, because mine shifts best when cold. Especially the 2nd to 3rd shift. As soon as the tranny warms, I have bad grinding going from 2nd to 3rd. Any thoughts?

Synchros. If it's grinding after warm up, then the gears are not synchronizing. A number of companies sell an upgrade kit for the 3650 gearbox.
Try some Lucas transmission fix and see if it's any better? Good luck.

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.

Thanks for your help. I was thinking since my Bullitt shifts much better when cold, maybe a higher viscosity fluid would get me by, until I get a new tranny. I guess it can't hurt to try that Lucas Trans Fix.
