using syn oil in tranny

I've read several posts regarding changing standard tranny oil to synthetic. What I'd like to hear, is what was the result if any to how the tranny shifted after the syn was installed. My tranny in my '88 YJ is sometimes hard to shift into 1st after I stop at a stop sign. Sometimes after I come to a complete stop, it doesn't want to go into any gear. Sometimes I have to goose the engines rpm's to get it to go into any gear. So I'm wondering if I installed Mobile one synthetic 10w-40 if I could expect any improvement? If you switched, I'd sure like to know if the results were worth the work changing it.

Tranny's can be had for pretty cheap. Seems like you need something more than just some synthetic oil.

I know guys have used synthetics in the AX-15. Not sure I have read of anyone doing it to the BA/10 which is what you have.

Interested in hearing any reports. My BA/10 does the same thing.

Best solutions is to swap the BA trans for an AX15. That will solve your shifting issue's
