I have a 2001 270cdi manual and have great problems getting 1st & 2nd when cold. After a few miles it is fine. Any ideas

Either the clutch is dragging slightly or the oil in the gearbox is going a bit thick due to being cold.
I suspect the oil is the issue unless there are other issues as well.

An oil change might help, I would recommend Millers synthetic for a smooth change.

Yes I'd say its just the cold after a mile or 5 minutes everything is fine,you'll notice the difference when it's milder.
