you have internal issues with either the syncro or the gear itself.

ok cool
so i dont need a new tranny?
i did not say that. that will be up to the guy that will check it for you to determine the exact failure

ok thanx
THIS CAR ALSO HAS SHIFT CABLE PROBLEMS. DOES THE SHIFTER FEEL
LOOSE OR ABOUT THE SAME? DOES IT GO INTO GEAR WITH ENG. OFF?
IF CABLE, GEAR SLECTION WILL BE OFF, IF ALL GEARS IN PROPER POSITION
THEN IT IS NOT THE CABLE.
