3rd gear sometimes doesnt want to go in??? WHY!!! lol

Hey guys and girls,

can you please tell me if this is only a problem for me or for everyone?

Sometimes while driving and putting gear into 3rd, it either doesnt want to go in (like its stuck and its getting push back to neutral) or it doesnt go in and grinds the gears (like im not pressing enough clutch all the way to have the gear go in)...

I've ask all my friends and even my dad drove my car. They all had the same problem.

So hope you can help...

this is a very very common problem with alot of rsx transmissions, i highly doubt its your driving, unless you're just straight retarded at drive stick.
anwyays, most of these problems occur in either 2nd or 3rd gear.
im not going to flame you all that much, just search next time because promblems like these have already been answered like 4587630416 times before.

Changing the fluid only bandages the problem, it's still gonna be there and will need to be replaced eventually.

something's damaged and draining the fluid will just make it feel better in the meantime. it'll need to be repaired/replaced eventually

tranny flush, hybrid racing shifter bushings, and a weighted shift knob resolved my problem for 3 years, then had to get another flush.
