I've not long bought a 55 1.6 Sport and just this last week or two I've been having an intermitant problem with getting into second gear. It'll just go stiff, and often you can only get the stick about half-way in, sometimes a good tug will pop it in, other times I have to push the stick back to neutral and try again. Quite often its worse when the cars cold too.
All the other gears are fine, although I have noticed that sometimes they just slide smoothly in and other times it can feel a bit ratchety but still go in ok. Theres no crunching of gears or any other noise (that I can hear) otherwise.
My dad tried the car and it only happened to him once and he and thought that it was probably just the clutch that needs adjusting but I'm not convinced.
Any ideas as to what it could be? Should I get it looked at asap etc
