Re: B16A With S80 will not go into gear
I have an issue with 98 JDM Integra Type R, 1.8DOHC Vtec, S80. Already replaced Honda MTF but no good. Gears are smooth as butter with the engine cold (I've checked all Gears, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and even Reverse) but when operating temp is reached it gets more n more difficult to shift and this isn't a problem with one gear. The shifter takes more effort to put it into gear. There is no grinding, no squealing at all. By the way with engine hot, even if I shut the engine try to shift it is still hard to shift. This I believe rules out issue with pilot bearing or clutch, has to be something in linkage cuz with engine off shifting the crankshaft isn't turning shouldnt be hard to shift. I suspect some swollen rubber bushing or i dont know. Please help.
