Question about Cars & Trucks
Try shifting into first without pressing the gas. If it is a slow decline before engine dies this is normal. If its a dramatic engine death, your clutch is to blame, if it still makes noise then its the gearbox. If you have a Mr. Clutch Autocentre near you they will test your gearbox for free as will many reputable transmission shops.

I have the same problem, Noticing that my 2006 Saturn Vue, 5-speed becomes extremely hard to shift
gears when the weather is cold. (Temps range from 20-43). Has been colder in the last month. What could this be?
also side note:
Our windshield wiper spray doesn't work on front window but work on back. They both started about the same time when the temps dropped to single digits. Dont know if that had any causes.

Your valve body and possibly input shaft nut need to be replaced. The valve body's booster valve is worn down and won't create pressure. Before it went completely out it slammed on the input shaft nut and loosened it.
You need to replace the valve body and retorque the input shaft nut. The transmission is not junk. The above needs to be replaced and change the filter and fluid and do it every 20K miles.

If third, forth, and fifth work OK then there could be a selector problem. Does the gear stick go into the correct position? If so then selector and or other internal problem which will require removal

Ether shift forks are worn out or it may have a broken brass syncronizer ring broken.
