holy thread revival
If you remember, did it ever go back it feeling hard dead stop to 1?i had the similar problem with my civic r18, MT.
hard shift 1 to 2, downshift 3 to 2. N to 1 at dead stop.
I'm Tried to change the gearbox fluid to AMSOIL syncromesh. Helped a little but not really and my first gear was really bad.
flushed again with GM AC DELCO Syncromesh 'friction modified'
Seriously, ALL the problem was gone. all the gear shift like in the butter.
hope i can help someone
