3rd gear messed up?
When I shift to 3rd gear it feels like you have to really push it in... the clutch is pressed in all the way and it feels like its notchy or something like it hits something before it goes in... Even when i am in nuetral and press straight up. I don't think i'm hitting on a gate. any suggestions?

Have your syncronizers checked, I had the same problem in my third gear as well.

before you do anything crazy, all you have to do is just spray some WD40 on the shift linkage or wutever that is. its a gold color piece that you have to spray on under the Hood, underneath the engine on the right hand side (actually the tranny). installs section has some pics and DIY instructions
