5-speed manual. It suddenly shifts hard. The shifter is stiff, sometimes it won't go in certain gears. For example it might not go into reverse but the other gears are fine. Next time reverse is fine and it doesn't like 1st etc. The clutch pedal seems fine. I replaced the engine about 1000 miles ago. When I examined the clutch and pressure plate it appeared to be in good condition and I replaced them about two years ago, so I did not replace it this time. The car does not lurch but sometimes grinds not wanting to go into a gear.
When I replaced the engine I replaced the fluid in the transmission too. After the engine change everything was great.
