every once and a while i have that problem. i put it in neutral and let the clutch out and then try again and it seems to work fine...it might have something to do with the trans spinning/not spinning while trying to put it into gear.....similar to downshifting to first. your trans doesn't want you to shift down too early(safety feature).

Your clutch isn't FULLY disengaging. It's the clutch M/C problem by the sounds of it. Shift into a forward gear 1st, then quickly to reverse. That may help for now (that will stop the gearing from spinning).

If you hadn't said that the M/C was needing pumping up, then I would have suggested pedal linkage adjustment. ;)

What he said, Every 5 speed i have owned has done that. You can feel if it's going to grind before it does, So if that happens let the car roll an inch or two then try it. As for me it's normal for a 5 speed.

This tranny is just known for that. If it dosn't want to go in, don't force it. Just put it into Nutrual, let your foot off the clutch, then try again. It should work this time :lol:
Just a quirk. Nothing big
