after some input to help resolve a likely fault so I can sound a bit more confident when going to the garage.
6 Speed Manual box - my first for a long time so I do not think it is me simply getting to grips with it.
Problem: I have some issues with getting into various gears, especially 4th. It is not all the time and the degree of difficulty varies. It is motly noticed when coming from 3rd into 4th and varies per the below:
- Goes in nice and smoothly and would not think it there was an issue
- Goes in with some wiggling (go back to neutral and try again) and the crunching / grinding
- Goes in with a bit more wiggling
- Goes in with brute force but still getting the crunching / grinding
Also I some times have problems getting over to Reverse and or up into 1st if I've been stationary at lights etc, but not that often.
is there any thing simple that I can check that does not need the engine taking out...
