Does it go in with the engine off? On my QV the clutch is hydraulic and has needed bleeding, not sure about the 3.4T.

1.st is unusual, but not uncommon.

I would check the linkage, some minor adjustments, and now that you have the gate off and can get in there, check the obvious: this is a minor --hopefully-- worn part.

BTW: how are the other gears? are you having a tough time 'throwing' it into other slots at ANY speed --remember not to include 2nd in your commentary.
