"Sticky" Shifter

Howdy all,
My V6 manual has been shifting kind of "sticky" lately. It's not the clutch, of that I'm sure. It's more of a kinda "crunchy" feeling when shifting, mostly from neutral to first when the light turns green. Sometimes I really have to force it into gear. Any thoughts out there?

I've kinda had the same thing but I try not to force it cuz I'm a pretty big guy and I've broken alot of stuff using that ol method. I usually go into 2nd then it should slide up into first nicely, if not try letting out the clutch a tiny bit also has worked

Thanks Sully, and yes I also do the into second back to first method and that works most times, it just seems like this should not be happening at all so I'm hoping to find a fix.

No problem like I said I try not to force it so I've never heard a "crunch" sound but if it gets any worse for me I would definitely look into fixing it. For now finesse seems to be the fix lol

I get that every now and then. On a hill I can roll forward or back a hair and it drops right it gear. If not I just start off in 2nd. In my case it seems to do it the next stop after a hard launch or when I light up the right rear a tad.

Yeah, same here, a little movement also helps. But i'm still trying to figure out what's causing it? Gear box? Can it be "lubed"? Just don't know yet.

Thinking it might be tranny considering the shifting but don't hold me to it. I just gotta hold mine together until my 66 coupe is done so I can park the 07. Then plan on new engine and tranny anyway when my daughter gets the 07, and try to tune it down so she won't hot rod it around like somebody else did.
