Default 2nd Gear grinds all other are good.

94 ford ranger 2.3L 4 Speed tranny with OD.

Heres my problem. I take off shift into 1st gear all good go to shift into 2nd and grinds but goes in not good. If i pop it out of first and let the RPM's rev down i can put it into 2nd Gear no problem at all. after 2nd gear its smooth. So ny idea what this could be? I have a bent transmisson mount that im going to replace but i dont know if that is the problem. Think the clutch is bad?0 a sensor? or the transmission it self?..
Taking it safe for right now and not gettin on it cause i dont wanna replace a transmission.

your shifter fork is screwed up. get it fixed before it breaks off and takes out your whole transmission.

It could be a synchronizor in the trans. It slows the gear down I just had mine done.

our transmissions are known for 2nd gear synchro's to go out.. i'd start there. sounds like thats the issue.

I found all of my parts on ebay. But u need to take it and have someone take it a part to see if that is all it needs. It might need a gear and I had all new bearings put in mine. You will need to find out what trans it is to.
