My car is hard to get into gear.
It sounds like there is a problem with your clutch. If your clutch is out of adjustment, it will not fully disengage. When this happens, the gears will grind because they will still be spinning, due to the clutch not being disengaged. Over time, this can damage the transmission. I would ask one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to inspect your clutch and transmission, and get your car working normally again.
