happens to lots of us, not only 240 owners...fluid isnt heating up yet thus not allowing smooth shifts...just be gentle when driving your car at first till its hot

Most of our cars do it. Because synthetic is a little thinner cars I have driven with synthetic don't shift as good until they are wamred up, but once warmed up they shift better.

Make sure you are using GL-4 fluid also.

I use MT-90 in my tranny and it is great once it is warm.
