Read the post earlier about recalls, etc...

TSB 230499 (March '00) has a topic of third gear hard to disengage.

Call your service advisor at your dealer, and see what the fix is, and keep us posted.

My service advisor stated that the fix is to replace the shifter as the rod and pivot can become misaligned over time. There is not a problem with the clutch or transmission which is what I originally thought.

By the way, my problem is engaging third gear, not disengaging. Now engaging second gear is becoming a problem. I'm scheduled for a new shifter Monday.
