Help with some transmission questions

Have a 99 mustang v6 and I think it's the t5 trans? Idk lol. But when I push the clutch in to start, it's easy to get into reverse. If I crank it, release the clutch while in neutral, then push down on it again, it's hard to get into first and reverse. Why? I have to put it in 1st before I come to a red light, and keep pushed down on the clutch. Because if I put it in neutral and try to put it in 1st at a red light but it takes to long so ppl honk sometimes lol. I have to push pretty hard to get it in. And I have to slam on it to get into reverse. Anyone got any idea? ALSO does anyone know how much estimated trans repair would be for my stang? It's still usable easily but it doesn't slip in nicely like it should and I would like to know how much I should start saving lol... Thanks.

I would start with the basics and try adjusting your clutch.

It's a lot easier. It feels like there is a block I have to fight through. A strong restriction. I can push it through in the first gear, and I have to slam it in for reverse, but any other are ok.

It could be the synchros in the trans are worn out.

Just guessing 1200-1800 but that is all gonna depend on your particular shops.it will probably be even more cause that is just the trans.most people do the clutch while the trans is out.I've never done your particular model but I have replaced a few trans and clutches and I'm no expert.if you are good with a wrench with our help and a Haynes or Chilton it is really not that hard to do yourself.

*But I would still check your clutch adjustment first being it is free and easy.*

I'm not sure if it will work in your particular trans but maybe look into some syncro mesh or Lucas makes some real good fluid products that may nurse the life of your trans a little longer.

Probably not.I've heard unless its done regularly it not a good idea.I would just try draining a little and add an additive.there is a high chance this isn't going to help but small price to try before doing a rebuild.

Try slowly raising the clutch pedal while pushing or pulling the shifter slightly to get in gear, slamming will make it worse fast!
