My sti doesn't work in the cold? If I haven't shifted in awhile it swings free then the second try it works???? This is only on the right sti going to a bigger cog. Any ideas??

It seems like most of the time that customers come into the shop with STI problems the mechanics always ask if they tried to shoot in any lube or de-gunk the shifter. I laugh at them and call them the "IT Department" for their steadfast protocal.

The only thing that comes to mind is a substance in the shifter the thickens due to cold....just random scattershooting but maybe a clean and re-boot err..re-lube would do some good.

If you re-post please refer to trouble ticket 231156 (laughs)
