MAYBE A REBUILD?

SOUNDS LIKE THE SYNCRONIZERS

HAVE YOU CHECKED FLUID LEVEL (MAY BE TOO LATE)

As CJ said, make sure the fluid is full, Other than that, it sounds like an issue with syncronizers. Replacing them would be less expensive that replacing the entire trans unless you can get a good used one.
