    If you haven't got one yet you may want to look into an aftermarket shifter. They don't have the rubber bushing so it feels alot more solid plus it's easier to find the gears. Also try investing in a short stick on top of that. These should help you alot but make sure you set the stop screws on the shifter properly.

    I went with the Hurst Billet/Plus and the Ws6store short stick

    Thanks for the advice, any chance it could be the transmission fluid!?

    I guess it's possible. Also didn't think about it at the time but you may have bent the shift fork for 3rd gear so it won't let it slip completely into gear.
