Default Gear Grind

I was traveling in 2nd gear. When the car slows down to approx 2-3km/hr, I gave it gas and the car kinda shakes so I know there is not enough power. Then I shift to 1st gear (car still moving) but when I do that there is a little grind. (The clutch is fully depressed but then it still grinds). Any clues?

Unless I'm going under 5mph I can't get into first. Try throwing it into reverse even when coasting backwards... the car knows what it likes.

my wife downshifted into 1st in the MS3 once, ONCE! Swift backhand at the next stop light cleared that shit right up.

Even with the stock shifter it may be of benefit to adjust the shifter linkage cables.
But like everyone else said, don't downshift into first while moving, unless its less than 5mph or so.

My car doesn't like downshifting into 2nd all that much either, you just have to use common sense and feel for what the car is telling you.

I can downshift into first easily going under 5mp with no grinding issues. I can get into second at about 20mph, but I can feel every bit of it. Both of those are without forcing it, and letting the transmission decide when it wants to let me into gear. Twice now I've been at 10ish mph and thrown it into first...it can be done, but the car hates it and makes a horrible grind and jolts like crazy. I never mean to do it, it's just a non-thinking moment and I know immediately that I made a mistake. Adjusting the linkage may help, but I would doubt it because if you're not having issues getting into gear normally then your adjustment is fine. even after installing my ssp my best shifting has been with the adjuster dead center.

What I like to do, maybe its my OCD but! When I am warming my car up I like to run through the gears before I start to drive it.

I feel as though it gets stuff moving and smoothes things out?

I tried doing this and it feels smoother when I drive it. But sometimes when I shift from 1st to 2nd, or 3rd to 4th, theres like something blocking the way esp from 1st to 2nd. 3rd to 4th is not as bad. The shifter can still go into the proper gear but I feel that the shifter came into contact or even grinded with some stuff. It happen to my previous honda prelude too Are all the 2nd gears like this?

I just rev match 1st coming at a light sometimes..if i get it i got it if i miss it then fuck it. I never grind EVER. And with the JBR mounts you can hear the trans whining up when your trying to get it into first. Once it gets the loudest point it just clicks right in.

1st gear has a lock out once car is moving period, only way around it is to blip the throttle to get it in without damaging transmission. dantes5823 cannot be the only one that realizes this? All my manual cars have been like this from time! All mine 1983 thunderbird turbo coupe, 1987 & 1990 5.0L mustang, 1987 & 1989.5 escort gt, 2.0L & 1.9 TDI VW's all manuals are like this it's nothing new? Look ahead predict which gear you are going to need to be in you not driving an automatic you should have a good measure of the traffic around you if not pay attention!
P.S if your going that slow just come to a stop and put in first if you can't blip or just slug it in 2nd.

Aren't you the guy who let the wife drive the car, and her first time in it she backed into a pile of shoveled snow before she even got out of the driveway?
