    What kind of car is this in? If it isnt in a 91 or older Civic or CRX or 93 or older Integra you are in the wrong section. not to mention a Type R transmission and a GSR transmissions are Hydro not Cable.

    try changing the fluid
    there are some real good lubes out there, nothing will fix the problem, but it can be made more bearable...

    3rd gear is at the end of the shaft in the tranny, and i guess the theory is that the bearing at the end goes so thats the first gear that starts going bad...

    you may just need to replace a bearing or the syncros?
    but try swapping in a better lube...
    i had some type of gear oil in one of my trannys and it helped
    maybe lutkin or some shit?

    good luck
