    I have a 1994 acura integra ls coupe with manual transmission.

    I've already tried to research online and cant find and answer.:confused::confused:

    My problem is that sometimes i cant get it to go in any gear, and it grinds real bad.

    sometimes i need to turn the car off then put it in gear then start it again, other times i start it and it works fine all day.

    what could be the problem??
    slave cylinder???

    any help is apperciated

    i would just get an exedy stage 2. i had one and it drives like oem but it grabs a little better.

    if you can afford it get an ITR tranny for the lsd, otherwise a GSR tranny would be good.

    think of how a tranny and clutch work. try to conceptualize what the process is and what would make it do that.

    if you engage the clutch, but you can't shift, the syncros are broken or out of sync. it's not allowing you to shift.

    the only one that is "better" is the ITR because it has an lsd.

    it all depends on what you want to do. if you want short gearing for a 1/4 mile, get a b16 tranny. if you want better mpg, get an ls tranny. if you want something in between get a gsr.

    the word "better" is a matter of opinion.

    Have you tried Synchromesh yet? I would try that before buying a new tranny. I prefer the Pennzoil variant, the Royal Purple didn't stop the synchro-gring as well....

    thats what they said on superhonda.com

    Before you get carried away with a new transmission double check your clutch hydraulics. If you can have a friend push on the clutch pedal when its acting up and watch how much or little the slave cylinder is moving the release arm. From what your describing I strongly suspect your clutch master or slave cylinder is starting to bypass internally. have you observed any change in the fluid level? try peeling back the rubber boot on the slave cylinder and check if its wet inside. good luck.

    Yes, Fernpatch is right! It sure sounds like a clucth hydraulic problem. You could change the trans and still have the same problem.
