Mine does the same thing into 2nd. Bad syncrho assembly and the others ones are probably on the way out too at this point. They upgraded them with carbon fiber blocker rings in 1999 but the 96-98s are notoriously problematic. I'm just replacing mine with a 3650, its in my garage I just need to find a weekend to get it on a lift and do it.
So long story short, you need a rebuild or a new trans. Not what you want to hear I'm sure but welcome to owning a 16 yr old car. The good news is that you can probably shift smoothly and fine if you are not trying to quick shift, I know I can.
