ok, this is not on my cougar, mine is an auto unfortunatly. but its on my Mazda MX6. its a 93 and has 114,000 miles on it. Since it got cold, its really hard 2 get the gears into first and second, what is causing this problem? and when i do get it into the right gear it seems to grind. i almost have 2 push/force it really hard for it 2 get it in gear. i also noticed when im waiting for a light or sumtin, ill be in first with the clutch fully down and the car will move forward, and when i rev it, the car moves forward. what is goin on?!?!
