I have a 95 Honda Accord 5 speed manual transmission. When I start my car in the morning it is impossible for me to put it into gear without jamming it in gear and when I switch from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd etc it sounds like the clutch isn't engaging fully because it makes a grinding noise when I put it into gear. Eventually the longer I drive throughout the course of the day the transmission goes back to normal and is smooth shifiting in and out of gears. Does anyone know what the problem could be and how I could fix it or am I going to eventually have to bite the bullet and buy a new transmission?
