Hrmm I have been noticing that sometime I put my car into reverse is kinda hard.. its seems like I have to slam it in.. but when i go thru all of my gears from 1-5 its smooth.. is this normal?

To some extent that is normal. Reverse doesn't have a syncro, so its harder to get in than 1-5.

Yep. Just put it in 1st, let the clutch out just a tad, then put it in reverse. It will work better.

i have the same problem, but my reverse is really bad. i didnt really pay attention to it until i almost ripped my friends shifter out putting his car in reverse...it was so easy lol

i just got my mtf changed and it seems to be even worse. ill change it myself when it gets warmer and use a different fluid i guess.

i forgot what kind of fluid, ill find out tomorrow from the mechanic. i think ill try redline or just use honda.
i usually shift to second then reverse but it doesnt always work. i also heard giving it a little gas while putting it into gear will help, im going to try to start doing that. (the 2nd gear habit is hard to break)

I've got an auto teg too. It does that because when you first start your car it idles very high when it's cold (mine at around 1700 rpm) for like 10 sec. Then it goes down to 700 rpm very slowly (2+ min). It's like dropping a clutch on a manual transmission at 1700 as opposed to doing at a lower rpm.
