Default 97 civic knocking and squeaking?

i own a 97 civic ex 5 spd it has a knocking sound that is less prevalent as the car warms up. appears to b coming from the motor any ideas i know its very general but any input will b greatly appreciated. i was wondering if its normal for a tranny to be stiff in shifting into first until the car warms up.

Have you checked the oil level? If it has run low on oil or been running on oil that has not been changed in the required intervals, you may have damaged the engine. Could be a main bearing knock or rod bearing knock. I would have it checked by a reputable mechanic A.S.A.P.

Stiff shifting into gears is an indication of worn synchronizers or worn clutch componets. Again, I would have it checked by a reputable mechanic.

Hope this helps.
