    In my 1998 Chevy, my 5 speed manual transmission does not go into 2nd gear while under some power. Could this be a synchronizer? If it is how hard is this to fix or replace?

    You probably have a worn out syncro assembly. Replacing it requires a teardown of the transmission which requires special tools. This job is best left to someone who is familiar with rebuilding manual transmissions. Make sure your clutch master cylinder is full as a leaking hydraulic system can cause hard shifting.
