It seems like 5th and 6th gears take more effort to shift to now

Hey,

I seem to notice this today, that like when shifting from 4th to 5th, I have to push the stick up harder and there is more resistance then their used to be. Same goes for 5th to 6th gear.

I got my car from a toyota dealer and it has almost 40,000 miles on it.

Any ideas?


I would of thought that all the fluids and everything would have been changed, as it is toyota certified.

Maybe you have busted one or more synchromeshes or they have changed the gearbox oil to a thicker one???

Usually the reverse or 1st and/or second goes first. I don't know either. You would be best off bringing it back to Toyota and I know it hurts. Have them check it and fix it for free. You have a free ride for a while for problems if it's certified from Toyota. Jump on it.

I can kinda tell the shift feeling...

Stay with me here...


Say your shifting through the gears, and your foot starts to lift up on the clutch before you get it in gear all the way, and it is harder to put it in gear? It rubs a little?

Well, mine is doing that all the time now, every gear but 1st.
