Shifter issues

after a downshift from 3rd to 2nd ive noticed tha tgoing into 1st,3rd and 5th now it feels very weird as if the is nom "engagement" feeling it feels rather notchy-ish but NO scrape or bite like how a bad syncgro would feel. its almost a mushy feeling but it goes into gear everytime no problem (almost too easy of a feeling) when driving normally but if i try to rev high then shift it will not accept the shift into 3rd or 5th. It has also become more of a pain in the ass to put it in reverse sometimes. even the letting off the clutch trick doesnt work anymore when this is happening. I also noticed that when in 1st 3rd or 5th that when in those gears it has more play like i can push up the shift more towards the dash wich never was like that before, but in 2nd, 4th, and reverse thers is no such play. Hoping it has nothing to do with synchros and maybe just something t0o do with cables. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Shifter issues

When is the last time you've changed your trans fluid? I don't know what to say about teh more travel then normal feeling but new fluid can do wonders for your knotchiness. Especially if your current fluid is well used. Also how many miles does your clutch have?

Clutch only has about 15,000 on it. i will change the fluid and see what happens. I took the cables off the shifter on the trans and they click in just fine on each one.
