anyone got any ideas why my van doesnt drop into second when coming back down the gears? going up is fine. i have checked the linkage and this seems fine and lubricated. also oil level is fine too. thanks guys

Sounds like worn syncromesh - it tends to be more apparent on down changes as the syncro has to speed up the gearbox internals (rather than slow them down, as happens on up changes). If the oil's not been changed for a while, it's worth doing as it can significantly help shift quality.
