2004 gto 6spd standard. I cannot go into first gear at all if im rolling. i have to be completely stopped and it still grinds putting it into first. Also i can be downshifting and sometimes it will do it with second gear aswell. my first thought was synchonizer, then my shifter cuz its the factory ****ty gto shifter and it pulls outta socket if i shift too hard, and ive been told its cheaper to just replace the tranny with a used one rather than deal with this at all. help me out someone. thanks

Got the car w'out engine. just built the car up and changed it then. The car only had 47k miles on it but its a possibility its not even tha stock one. it was twin turbo'd on a 408 stroker when he blew it...

47k behind a TT 408 Stroker would be about the same
abuse as a million miles behind a stock GTO.

Mine is doing the samething. I replaced the fluid in the trans and flushed the clutch fluid and replaced with fresh fluid and still the samething. Right now, Im looking at a $1400 rebuild.
