clutch, tranny or what?
 
when putting the clutch in, I can feel it go into every gear. it's a little hard in all gears, 2nd being the worst, and getting easier as I go up in gears. sumtimes I have to double clutch to get it in 2nd gear. sumtimes I'll have it in first at a light and it will pop out, or I just didn't get it in gear all the way :banghead: this is all when cold, after it warms up, it's not as bad. the issue is still there tho.

Do you have a body lift? I have heard they can cause the stick to pop out of gear, but that is usually in 2nd or 4th gear.

no body lift.

in my opinion it sounds like the sincros.

I agree, the synchros are probably shot. They usualy will go in 2nd and 3rd gears first. The synchros are a type of friction clutch that allows the gears to slow down and mesh when engageing. 2nd and 3rd are usually shifted through the most and the hardest. First gear usually doen not have a sychro because the vehicle is stopped.

thanks for explaining that, I didn't know how they worked.
