I bought my Z28, with T56 6-speed, 3 years ago with 17,000 miles on it. I have driven it in town daily with an occassional road trip. I do not race the car and drive responsibly. About a month ago, I noticed I was consistently having some trouble shifting into 2nd gear. I also have some trouble getting to 1st on occassion. However, trouble with 2nd is pretty consistent, but some times it slides in fine. I have no trouble with any of the other gears at all. I had the clutch fluid flushed last week but saw no change in behavior.

What could be the problem?

Could be a synchro problem in the trans. IS this car equipped with "skip-shift"? If so it might be that having th eproblem and not the trans. Aside from those things the shifter is all that is left

3 years ago I installed one of those by-pass wire units on the skip shift circuitry to disable it.

I think everyone does. Might want to have a trans guy drive it and see what he thinks
