The starting problem could be a dirty crank position sensor. Situated on front of engine next to bell housing. Use 10mm socket to remove holding bolt. Clean varnish build up on face of sensor with nylon scouring pad. Replace sensor and try starting. This happened to me after stopping at shop and would not start when returned.
On a few occasions it has become difficult to engage 5th gear. The problem is not consistant, happens at different times of day and engine temp's. Speed at change does not have a effect. Have to hold gear lever and release clutch to engage.
