I have a 1992Honda Accord/Excel/172,000 miles. Recently, it has become a little difficult to change gears
When the engine is cold, I have to pull hard on the brake to move from park to reverse.A little easier to move into drive. When the engine is warm, it is not as difficult. This change started approximately three weeks ago.

Do you
have the same problem?

I'm a little confused. You have to pull on the brake? Do you mean the shift handle? If this is what you mean, the shift cable (or linkage) may be binding.
