My 1992 Dodge Stealth R/T Twin Turbo 5-speed does not like to go into 1st gear, in order to get it to go into 1st gear when going from a stop, and coming to a stop I have to slam it into 2nd and up into 1st.

Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like a bad pressure plate or the clutch isn't fully engaging. Check that and check to make sure the trans fluid is full and clean.
