Ok need help figuring this out before I take it to 50 different places giving me different diognosis. So when I shift into first and second it grinds going into gear but as soon as I have it into gear it’s good. Sometimes it don’t even make the noise of grinding into gear but 80% of the time it does. I can also not go into 6th gear and for 5th gear it sometimes slips out of gear and I have to throw it back into gear. Dealership told me it might be my tranny, but I feel it’s a clutch issue. Any suggestions?
There are multiple causes for this condition, but here is a simple one to check: The transmission oil seems to be too thick, or too cold. Many people experiencing the grinding shift solved it with replacing the oil with synthetic oil, which doesn't oppose flow at cold or warm temperatures. Try this simple test. On a cold morning, start your engine with your clutch depressed. If you release the clutch and notice that the engine RPM's dip, that's a sign that the transmission oil actually opposes mechanical rotation because it's thick and cold.
