    I have a 1995 gmc sierra with a 305 and a 5 speed maual trans. My problem is at start up is goes into gear just fine, but once the engine is warmed up and i start getting traffic lights. Since i have it in nuetral and try to put it in gear it wont go in. In other words can't put it in gear without strugling and grinds when i try to put it in reverese. Has any one had this problem or know what i'm talking about.

    I'm no expert

    I was having some of the same problems with an S-10 I had in highschool... I want to say that It ended up being the pressure plate was worn.

    But like I said, I'm no expert.

    Out of curiosity, How many people have learned how to drive stick in your truck?

    i finally figured out the problem, the line rubbed on the body for so long it wore a pin size hole in the clutch line. went to a local auto parts and paid 44dls for a dorman replacement clutch line. And i don't teach nobody how to drive stick.

    It is not hard if you know how to drive a manual.
    If you're thinking about changing your transmission: Buy another car with an A/T instead. It is way more cost effective.

    I was having the same exact problem with my 95 305 5-speed. I just had the clutch replaced and now it shifts like a breeze.
