I was driving today got into it a little and went from 2nd to 3rd and missed 3rd bad!!! when im at idle it goes into every gear as it should and when i shift under 3k rpms they go into gear fine it seems I have to match the motor to the shift and its fine but anything over 3k rpms it wont go into anything!! idk what the issue is I thought syncro but i thought each gear has its own syncro!!??

forever till you get it fixed. it may be worth it for you just to get a new trans. pulling the trans is expensive and you can find a used mtx for about 250 bucks if you look.

when your at a standstill it shifts fine? i had a similar problem about 2 months after i got my car and theres actually a tsb on the clutch disk, sure enough we changed it at my job and the disc was cracked, other than that it could be a pressure plate or synchros

get the tranny out and check the clutch/pressure plate/flywheel...once you get to a higher rev it wont make good contact so thats why your having hard shifting, whats the highest rev you can shift to? and can u downshift easy or you have to let the revs drop alot?

No matter how hard you shift? Like you physically can't get it into gear above 3k?

Thats happening to my third gear. When i rev out 2nd gear and put it into third it grinds even if i have the clutch to the floor. Im told my syncro's are messed up and it will need to be rebuilt.

yeah no matter how hard i try to shift it just wont go in! now if i hold it to the gear as im shifting when it gets to the rpm where the motor is matched to the gear it will go in, when i press clutch Rpms drop but its identical to driving the car without the clutch but as i said clutch does drop the rpms

if you have to match revs for it to shift i would think its syncros
