2008 Kia Rio Manual Trans shift issues.

Asked by Jul 10, 2017 at 06:08 PM about the 2005 Kia Rio Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 2008 Kia Rio Manual Transmission. Intermittently the car when you
start it will not go into first or reverse gear. If you turn car off and shift it will
generally be okay adn will work.  For example if you back out of a parking
space you sometimes have to turn off the car and put it in first and start it and
then will work fine.  It is just very difficult to shift into the gear unless you stop
the car.
Car is 2008 but has few miles like (55000). Car ran great and let a friend learn
to drive. He did grind gear once or twice badly. At the same time I had taken
car into replace an axel boot. Since then the problem started.

I was hoping to get some ideas because it will csot fortune in towing etc if take
it wrong place up front. No place will change fluid when I mention issue.
