I have this problem with my tranny. I drive down the road in say 3rd or 4th gear and I slow down to make a turn (but not completely stop). I try to down shift to 2nd gear but it's hard to lock it in; I feel a lot of resistance. When I do get it into 2nd, it sounds like it's grinding against something (Not the kind of grinding when you try to get into a gear w/o the cluth in). 1st gear is even worse. I have to repeatedly push the stick forward hard a couple times before I get it.

Does anyone else experience this? It doesn't seem normal. Is there a way to fix this w/o having to spend mucho money?

I drove this girls VR4. BTW, what a beast! Her 2nd gear did that. Her pressure plate was loose as hell. Tightened her back up, drove a lot better.

Grinding of gears usually means worn synchronizers or worn clutch. Worn synchros are gear-specific whilst clutch affects all gears.

The other causes mentioned are typically low-probability.
