Any chance you've bent or broken something in the shifter / linkage? Bushings? Etc.?
... is it believable to say that something is bent or broken and the gears still work from first through fifth shifting up, but then shifting down only fifth through third work...
found out today that if i avoid third gear all together then it shifts just fine, in and out of every gear just like normal...except third gear of course. As soon as i tried third and then downshift to second, it wasnt havin it. Can a single gear cause this kind of problem, or a single synchro...man i wish i knew more of how the inside of the tranny worked...but i guess ill learn eventually right? lol
Soooooo ... It *does* have something to do with 3rd gear after all.
When I read your original post I thought that slam into 3rd at around 50 mph must have been the probable cause, but couldn't figure out why the subsequent symptoms all had to do with 1st and 2nd.
I still don't know what could be messed up about 3rd and cause shifting problems with 1st and 2nd.
