I have an 87 930 with 50K miles on it. I had the same problem as Fairman until last weekend when I drained the transmission and replaced the fluid with Swepco 201. I had problems at stoplights getting it to go into 1st...and sometimes into reverse. Since I've switched to the Swepco, the shifting has improved dramatically, although I think that the 930 four-speed transmissions will always be somewhat difficult to shift into 1st and require a soft touch. They don't like to be hurried, and sometimes I shift into 2nd then into 1st if it balks on me. Bottom line is that it's been much smoother and easier to shift since the switch to Swepco.
