I've especially noticed with a 2000 GTS that you have to shift cleanly what I mean is that you can't ride the sides of the shifter and that force=super bad on that transmission. Maybe someone screwed up your tranny after re-insatall I cannot say. Good luck i'm sorry to hear about your mis-fortune especially in the snow.
