    You might want to go get that checked out. I had something similiar happening to mine, but I didn't take it anywhere. Needless to say, yesterday I just got my car back with a completely rebuilt transmission. Alot of money, not too happy about it.

    Not to jump the thread, but how are the syncros checked? Mine does this but very rarely.

    Thanks

    x2 on the sychros (or your clutch isn't fully disengaging).

    Sychros can't be physically checked w/o opening the tranny. But, you can "test" them by rowing thru the gears when stopped. Also, if you have trouble shifting while driving or grinding when shifting, you are probably looking at a synchro issue.

    Dont think its the synchros cuz none of the gears grind and i dnt have trouble shifting wen driving, even wen shifting hard at high rpm's. The only problem is sometimes wen i cum to a complete stop.

    It's possible that it's just the way the gears in the tranny line up sometimes when you stop. I know Mustangs (T5 tranny) are notorious for having to go into a forward gear (like 5th) before going into reverse...Part of that is b/c reverse is not synchro'd, but it also just depends on where the tranny stops.

    I'm still learning about F-body manual tranny's b/c they use a hydraulic clutch, so I may be off on this: I might check and see if the master or slave cylinder need to be replaced.

    Someone else will have to chime in on that....I'm not sure if they can be checked w/o pulling the tranny or not.
