When you change gear you don't use your whole leg to change from one gear to another. You should be able to just use your foot and ankle without moving anything above your shin. If you have to move the whole leg to change you should change the position of the gear leaver so it is closer to your foot. To do this there is usually a bolt on the gear leaver ...
I read a book called Engineer to Win by Carrol Smith. In the book he talked about the amount of stress any piece of metal can sustain before failure. He described how, for instance, a valve spring can handle many, many, many, revolutions of the camshaft as it bumps the valve train. It can deal with this over and over again as long as the lift of the camshaft ...
With your added information, this sounds like there is a definite problem with the transmission. Your description leads me to believe it probably has something to do with the clutches being worn out in conjunction with low line pressures (or some such). I would definitely believe the transmission is due for an overhaul. If you pull the dipstick, does the ...

Every vehicle owners manual tells you the frequency at which your auto-trans should be serviced/adjusted.Very few do hence things go wrong.Hate to sound like your nanna but ppppp (proper prevention prevents poor performance)
Your clutch may be fine but your rear main bearing oil seal may have shrunk causing oil to be deposited on clutch components.Easy fix-pour a bottle or two of auto-trans stop leak into your engine (yes,your engine) which in a very short time will swell seals.Did it to my fj40 4 years ago and it has worked to date.If this does not work you have spent little ...
99% that your clutch is beginning to give out. If you get spikes like that under load, it basically means that your clutch plates aren't gripping together. Basically what is happening is that the engine can't grip the plate that moves the wheels, so I just slides along. If you get a funky-terrible smell, that is your clutch burning. You will probably ...
If the RPM rises without a corresponding change in velocity in a vehicle with a manual transmission you've got a slipping clutch.
