My car has 100000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

There are two possibilities: there is a clutch or clutch control (hydraulics, etc.) malfunction or the synchronizer and/or related assemblies in the transmission itself is faulty. To distinguish between the two and thence pinpoint the issue, the recommended service is a clutch system inspection. Even if the clutch turns out not to be the issue during that inspection, once that possibility were eliminated, the same responding mechanic would simply evaluate the transmission. If you request that service, the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
