clutch/tranny help

i drive a 94 integra and i'm having problems switching gears. i don't know if it's my clutch or my gearbox or what. 1st of when i start my car and i try to reverse it won't go into gear so i have to play with in it neutral and then put it into reverse. the gears don't switch easily either when i'm driving. it's not a smooth switch and i have to push/pull hard to get into the next gear. also my gears tend to grind a lot, esp. when i'm around 5 or 6 thousand rpm sometimes i have to force it to go in. one shop told me that i need a new clutch, another told me it's my gearbox so i'm better off getting a new tranny. just wondering if you guys can help me out tell me if you experienced this before and what it could be. don't wanna blow a grand on something i didn't need. thx.

could be the clutch or tranny.
i'd check to see if the slave cylinder is working properly and fully disengaging the clutch....its a lot cheaper/easier to replace than a clutch/tranny.

The longer you drive that the worse it gets. Judging from what you decribed you dont sound too mechanically inclinded. If I were you I would have taken care of this at the first sign of trouble.

Take it to a shop.

Also when shifting any standard trans. into reverse always:

first then reverse

If its the slave cylinder and you dont take care of it the the problems progress fast!

Definetly start with the slave cylinder spend a few bucks making sure its in top shape.

you dont need to replace the slave to make sure its engaging properly, lol.

Anyways, to me it sounds like your synchros are on they're way out. but i would have to drive it to actually tell you for sure. Take it to a shop (y)
