So this week I think I've started to get what's been known as the 'third gear grind', except I don't hear any grinding?

About 30% of the time when I shift into third, the shifter doesn't shift all the way into third? No grinding, and I can let go of the clutch and it'd be in third. What's going on?

For me, 3rd gear grind usually occurs when i accidentally shift too fast before the car is fully warmed up. U should be glad that it doesn't or hasn't happened to u. The sound it makes is so bad.

It doesn't always happen.

Sometimes when going into third gear, it won't engage fully when you shift it the same way to engage it in other gears. Other times, it pops back out into neutral because it doesn't fully engage, and then, very rarely, it grinds going into third. You'll know when you hear it.
