power loss in 1st gear


New member
After coming to a stop and starting in 1st, there is very little power before I shift to 2nd. The other gears seem not to be affected. If I shift down from 2nd to 1st, the power loss is not as noticeable. I don't know if this is a transmission problem, but am taking a guess, but could it be another problem?
This is a 91 Westfalia, manual transmission.
