The best way to find out if the issue is in the transmission or the shifter is remove the shift cables off the top of the transmission and shift it manually if it shift ok that weasy its either in your shifter or cables if you have the same issue with ther cables taken off the trans then you more then likely have a internal synchro issue in the trasnsmission . I hope this helps
