Need help with a noise from my manual transmission
As time has passed, my truck has been getting harder to shift into gear - sometimes I have to jam it into gear, or I'll have to shift into a different gear before I can get the one I want.
Recently I've developed a noise when I'm shifting into second and fourth gear (I haven't listened for reverse). The noise sounds like the squeak you get when something wet is forced to pass over rubber. I'm thinking it could be my shifter rubbing against a rubber seal, but I've got no very little experience in dealing with my transmission. Can anybody tell me if I'm dealing with a major problem here, or something that I can live with for a while?
