    gearbox question

    noticed abit of a problem with my car just latley.. basically sometimes when trying to get it into second gear from first it just wont have it... esp if i pull off sharply and try change on about 4500k.. its not often, just intermittent and then also on some different occasions when it is in second and usually when the cars cold if i go to change to third gear it just jumps out as soon as i dip the clutch and makes a slight clunk from the gearstick as it jumps out

    it is rare it, probably once/twice a week or something but i dont want it to become a problem that gets worse and ends up with a re-con gearbox,

    could it be the syncromesh or the gear linkage on the way out??

    any help will be mush appreciated!

    Cheers

    Matt

    On my old cavalier i had a similar problem till one day i lost all my gears apart from 4th, it happened while facing down hill with a car a few inches from my front bumper mid turn... Nice, turned out to be the gear stick linkage under the car, the bolt had loosened over time and was slipping...
