    1st gear awkward to get in

    hi guys, what with it being very cold this morning i noticed a slight problem when setting off to work first thing (-1.5 infact!), 1st gear seemed very very stiff, no crunching or anything, just requiring the extra push to get it in, it got better after about2 miles of driving (im assuming as it warmed up etc), by end of the journey it was fine and went in smooth as it always did. after leaving the car from 8 whilst 5 i got in again (3 degrees this time!) and it was similar again, awkward to get into first (all other gears fine) for thefirst few minutes, then fine once it warmed up. ive never noticed this before, im thinking obviously with it getting better when warm it could be the oil? or something more serious?

    the oils never been changed, its a 2001 1.4 z14xe

    any advice?

    thanks in advance
