    When I shift out to 1st gear in residential streets and then to 2nd and 3rd, a stop sign might come up. And like I like to go out in a hurry, I force it to first with the clutch down. But my point is that it doesn't let me shift in first till under about 10 mph. What is this or forcing it to the gear could affect my transmission??? Just curious. Sorry for the way I explained it.

    Your tranny will start grinding gears on a regular basis after a while. It's not good for it.

    i could usually drop it in first if i was rolling below 30....

    perhaps this is why my synchros on my d-series were fucked like a whore on prom night.

    :blink:

    hmm...

    I don't suggest ^^"dogging"^^ on your tranny under any conditions unless you have the cash flow for another in the future.


    there is no need to shift like your throwing a bowling ball around, smooth shifts in unesine.

    Hey,
    Can you shift in to first when you double clutch?
    I have exactly same issue with my 92 Civix cx, 1st gear will not go in untill below 10-15 km/h or less unless I double clutch, then it pops in with no effort at all.
    I thought it was a safety feature incorporated in to the tranny.
    Please correct me if I am wrong.
    Best Regards

    If you are still rolling, why don't you just pop it in second?

    If your in 3rd, just downshift to 2nd, release the clutch, and brake. I NEVER downshift to first!

    If it has a hard time goin into first, let the clutch out in neutral and then put the clutch back in and try, should go in like butter.
