Any grinding noise when you try to put it in gear?

Is it difficult to put into second gear?

Does it feel like it JUST barely goes into second?

I recently took my shifter assembly apart to do a shift boot delete mod (shameless self promotion https://www.yourcobalt.com/forums/mem...ot-delete.html)

I had to take out the whole gear shifter to get rid of the plastic housing for the reverse lockout. One of the times I put it back together, I didn't set the cable clip in the right position, and second gear would hardly catch. Just had to adjust the clip and it fixed the issue.

Find an open space or lot to park. Put the handbrake up and try to pull away in first gear (don't pop the clutch and try to do a burn out). If it pops out of gear, that may indicate a problem.
