I have a 05 OR manual 6 speed with 197K miles and the original clutch. I have never had any issues with it until the last couple of weeks. It now doesn't shift into gear smoothly anymore. I have to compress the clutch to the floor board and push with some effort to get it into gear. When the engine is off, I have no trouble shifting between gears smoothly but with it running it is a pain. I have checked the fluid level and it is fine and I see no evidence of any leaks.
I need suggestions on what to check and what it may be?
I am hoping it is a clutch issue and not something deep and dark inside the transmission.
Give me some thoughts TW
