Both cars same problem with down shifting .

When you try to down shift can you hear the gears grinding .

When parked and engine off can you go though all the gears up and down .

How many miles and when was the gear oil last changed on the manual transmission .

No gears grinding can't engage anyone
When parked and engine off no any problems all gears are fine
49 K miles and gear oil not changed and no history. I bought it when the clock was 42K

Okay one more question .

If you select 1st or 2nd gear with engine off and press the clutch down and start the engine will this work .

okay looks like you have a problem with the syncromesh rings .

What you could try first is drain and flush the transmission then replace with castrol syncromesh gear oil .

this will loosen up the syncromesh rings .

If this does not work you will have to have the transmission opened to replace the rings .

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
This is not a one answer and done i will stay with you until the problem is sorted out .
