Default hard to shift gears on 91 Accord

I have a 5-speed 91 Honda Accord and the gears are feeling hard to shift. Any
thoughts? Thank you.

Sean,

You haven't told us the mileage, or the last time you drained and
refilled your tranny, or the outside temperature. If it's -40 where you
are, your problem might not be a problem. Otherwise, stick your pinky
into the 'fill' hole and see if there's any fluid in the gearbox. Your
oil change place will do this for you if you ask. You'd be better off to
have a real mechanic drain and top it up for you with Honda MTF. Your
owner's manual will tell you the exact capacity, or the parts guy at
your dealer will know . . . . .

Have you checked the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder?

It could be the cluch pressure plate is about to expire. It happened to me
just 3 weeks ago in my 1993 integra.

Hope tho for your sake it is just the fluids level.

Tazzzzzzzzz

Sean,

Bear in mind that fluid levels don't tell the whole story. For instance,
if you 'top up' the reservoir, but there's already air in the line, it
will still have to be bled to cure the problem. A spongy feeling pedal
and grinding shifts will persist until you eliminate the air. Rarely
does the air bubble come back out for you. :-(
