shifting problems, help please

1998, stock. 3rd owner.Running well excpet this shifting problem.
Run synthetic everything, transmission fluid done 6 months ago.
All fluids done in last year.
Did have brake fluid level issue last year, top it off and apparently the sensor was off.

Ive had the car for 2 years and it was always stiff putting into 1st.
In last 6 months other gears have been getting difficult.*The clutch is totally fine its just the gear box.
So started that going through neutral it squeaked constinatly. Also has poped out of 2nd a few times.*
Now on and off through a drive shifting up into 3rd or 4th or down into 2nd it feels as though im squeezing it into place, very stiff.
No problem with 5th or reverse.
Now ive looked under at slave and master cylinder, and its leaking a tiny bit, but im not sure if replacing this will fix it.
Dont want to spend the money to find out it didnt work.

Could i just need to oil linkage or maybe get techician to look at the box for any other hints?
Any help would be great, thanks

First things first fix the leak. To me it sounds like the pressure plate isn't moving enough, a hydraulic issue would cause this.

Ohh and read over your posts before you submit them, I had to read this 3 times to understand what you were saying.

and if it is hard to shift, fix it asap. forcing it will not help anything, as you will end up snapping your shift linkage cables.

Re: shifting problems, help please

First gear should only be used if starting from a COMPLETE stop. Nothing else. My mom was complaining it was hard to shift into first, so I sat in the passenger seat with her and she was shifting back into first wayyyy to early when coming to a stop.

Which cylinder is leaking? Either way, it's best to replace both as one tends to fail right after the other. Check the clutch fluid reservoir to see how much you're leaking.

This should help with your shifting, as the point of engagement is most likely out of spec if you have a leak in the hydraulic system.

Other things to check are the nylon washers for where the shift linkage attaches to the trans.

As for the squeaking in neutral, you probably need to grease the pivot points on the shifter.
