Why is it that sometimes when I down shift, the stick wont go into gear unless I pump the gas a bit?? 6th to 5th, I have to keep the gas up a bit or it wont go in.... there is some sort of hard point that prevents me from going into gear.

I have noticed that all the other gears are like this too, but not as bad.

Its almost like it sucks it into gear when I step on the gas a bit, but it puts up a fight with me when I dont do that...

Is it just me, my car, my tranny, my clutch??? or what...

ANy insight into this, or is it normal.... car has 122 000 km on it (~70k miles?).

Hmm that sounds kinda strange, i dont have a 6 speed but a 5 speed coupe and i dont have to do any of that...the only problem with mine is sometimes its hard to put it in reverse and and sometimes grinds when downshifting into 3rd...

I know what your talking about because I had similar problems. I just change my clutch and so far it's been fine. Going into first gear is sometimes a problem as you had indicated, but much better than before. It was frustrating not being able to switch when you wanted. I noticed that my slave cylinder seems to be leaking a little when changing the clutch. It's not bad so maybe this is another problem or the syncros are worn out. I will change my slave cylinder probably next year or when it's starts to leak bad. I'll keep you posted if that makes a difference.

I have a 5spd, and when putting it in 1st gear at a dead stop, stoplight, etc., I have to ease off the clutch a little to get it to go into gear sometimes..........happen in reverse too, but otherwise it is fine once I'm rolling. No grinding or anything in any gear.

Well, I'm no expert, but it could be the syncros, or maybe a bad trans mount. I do not have this problem with my 6-Speed yet though, so it is defiantely NOT normal.
