MY GEAR SHIFT

1997 Honda Civic

Transmission problem
1997 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 190000 miles

Often my gear shift will need to be forced into third gear. My solution to this is to bypass third and go to fourth but, this slows down my acceleration. What could the problem be and how can I fix it.

You need a transmission rebuild. The synchro is most likely the culprit.
