Default Would changing my tranmission oil help (manual)?

well i have a 1994 honda civic 5 speed manual transmission as of lately i can have the clutch all the way down and put into gear smoothly most of the time but there is a small grinding or a wrrying noise occsionily. lately though when i shift though the gears it has been tough getting into the gears and when i let off the clutch it makes a crunch noise as the gear engage sometimes so rough it causes the car to stutter. this doesnt happen all the time but its happening enough to really worry me. what could be the problem ? and would changing the oil in the transmission help ?

Probably not. It sounds as if the synchronizers are shot. Try to double clutch when shifting gears. Put the clutch pedal down and shift to neutral and then put the clutch pedal down and shift into the next gear. If you can shift this way easily without any grinding it's your syncros. You can probably shift the car this way for thousands of miles if you want to rather than replacing the syncros. If you choose this option I would change the trans oil as there is metal from the worn syncros in the tranny.

IF you change ur tranny oil... MAKE SURE ITS THE SAME!Or you will ruin your tranny.Even if they say "oh you can just flush it all out"you CANT flush ALL of it out... a small amount stays in there.

You can flush it all out if you turn it upside down.

Check the fluid in the slave cylinder for the hydraulic clutch. It may simply deed to be topped off or you may need a new slave cylinder.Changing the oil in the transmission will not help.
