I'm having trouble shifting into first gear and reverse. No grinding going into first, but unless it is off and I put it into first with the engine off, it is VERY hard to shift into first when starting out for the day or going from a dead stop nuetral to first gear. I usually just put it into first when I'm slowing down to stop at about 5 mph or so. Goes into first very easily, then ease off the brake or keep the clutch depressed. Reverse is a different story. Grinding. I do the same thing. Put it into reverse when the engine off when I have to back out somewhere after parking. I know these are temp solutions to a bigger problem, but what could be wrong and what might the cost of repair be? This baby has 139k on it, but engine is strong and quiet.
have the same problem?
