  1. Clutch or Gearbox problem

    I have a ford fiesta flight, 1.3, 2001. The other day I was driving - trying to get in lane. I was in second gear, accelerating pretty hard; I was too busy concentrating on the traffic around me. Then i looked down into my speed gauge, immediately heard the engine was over revving;I began to change into third, missed, then after a huge racket, I got her into third. After that incident my gearbox stiffened and 1st gear pull offs judder. The gearbox has loosened up abit though. If i accelerate moderately the gearbox stiffens up slightly. Does anyone know what is wrong? Thanks in advance
