Either your syncro's are out or your clutch and throwout bearing need to be replaced. Normally higher gears will shipt easier. You need to chech for a grinding sound or howling when you engage the clutch.

MY 04 sunfire grinds when i switch to 5th gear!!

hi there
when you shift into 5th gear take it real slow and easy on it this is a result of the syncranizer in fifth gear going out if you take it gentle this will last a while without having to replace it hope this helps you have a great day

Could it be the water pump or timing chain that whines on the right side of engime

It could be any of the beraings on one of your pulleys. The altenator, water pump, tensioner pully, power steering, any of thse can cause a squeel when the bearings go bad. timinag chains usuaaly won;t squeel, they just break.

Engine knocks cold ok hot

if its at the top end its pistion slap
if its at the bottem end(of your engine) its a crank shaft bearing.

with out going into extream detail,

a ting sound at the top is a pistion slap.... replace all your pistions posibly over hual the engine.

a dubble knock that gose with rpm but sounds 2 knocks very every fireing of the pistion is a crank bearing..... replace your crank shaft bearings.... all of them b/c metal gose threw an engine extreamly fast and will destroy other beraings. this knock on start up will turn into a knock all the time, then a very louad knock that will end your engines life.

unfortunetly the answer is engine rebuild and fast.
