Hi my 2007 1.6 VTR crunches when selecting 1st gear when the car is moving at 10 mph or less. It is fine when stationary and when hot will go into first at 5mph or less. Just wondering what’s causing this thanks

Also while I’m at it I have what smells like coolant in passenger footwell only just got the car previous owner said he had to top up coolant now and again any ideas what’s leaking

On the gear crunch - your clutch cable is loose or you don't have it fully pressed. It's a clutch problem. Coolant in the footwell sounds like coolant leaking. Have you googled it?
