I HAVE A , IT SHIFTS FROM 1,2,5 GREAT, WHEN GOING INTO 3RD OR 4TH IT WILL NOT ENGAGE AND GRINDS OUT. IF YOU ARE AT A LOW ENOUGH RPM IT WILL GO INTO EITHER GEAR BUT IS A REAL STRUGGLE TO GET IN THERE, COULD THIS BE AS SIMPLE AS SHIFT LINKAGE?

Or do you think it may need a whole new transmission

It needs a syncroniser in the trans. To replace it means total tear down. It may be more cost effective to look for a good used trans. Get a shop to check and confirm.
