Default Honda Manual Car won't turn into First gear?? HELP!!!!?

Hey i have Honda Accord Coupe 98 and its manual. Just bought it about 2 weeks ago and today when i was leaving work i was having trouble putting it into first gear. It felt as if there was a wall blocking it and it happen to me again when i had to stop a red light. So then i parked to get something to eat and when i started driving my car again i wasn't having trouble putting it into first gear until later on for some reason started doing it again. Does anyone know what it means??? I don't know if it was because of the cold or what. Theres been colder days then what it was today but i didn't have trouble putting it into first gear. Please someone help!!

If your car is turned off and you roll it back and forth on a level surface and it goes into first your transmission is probably OK. If your car is running and clutch is all the way to the floor and you can't get it in first gear, it may be time for a new clutch.

To start with check if your clutch wire is alright or not as that may be a minute issue and if not then I think you need to get ur gear fixed, and when i say that i mean the gear in the gearbox itself as what i understand you dont have any problems changing into 2nd and then 3rd, 4th, 5th etc, so there is nothing wrong with your clutch then. There seems to be a problem with your 1st gear's teeth as i think they have worn out. I recommend you to instantly go to a mechanic before you land up damaging the entire gearbox. If so is the case get the GEAR replaced not all of them only the first. But i pray for you its not the gear as it is a very expensive affair.
