: On chilly mornings, it is sometimes hard to fully engage 1st gear. You can feel it is not going in all the way, and when you let out the clutch, it pops out. Trying to re-engage sometimes results in either grinding or a successful shift. Are my synchros bad? $$$??

Try switching to Redline ATF fluid in your tranny. I will definately make the shifting easier.
