Question about Cars & Trucks
Could be a few things but the most common would be your clutch friction plate wearing thin, if your clutch biting point is high then this may be the case, it could also be the clutch pressure plate weakening, these 2 parts come together as a clutch kit which involves removing the gearbox to replace them. it could also be something simple like your clutch cable needs adjusting (if its cable operated) or your clutch fluid may need topping up/replacing (if hydraulic). in worst cases it could be the an internal fault with the gearbox which can be expensive to repair and usually cheaper to source a used replacement.

Sounds like gear linkage on top of gearbox under car. should be adjustable. simple job. if not, could be an internal gearbox problem. ie. dogs in gearbox worn. big job. or could simply be a clutch problem. difficult without driving car.

I am dealing with a very similar issue on my 03 Spec V , So far i noticed the clevis pin was loose and the locking hitch pin that slips thru it had fallen out . this caused the gears to not wanna engage due to the bolt behind the clevis which runs to the master cylinder was not getting pressed in when i pushed the clutch pedal in because the clevis pin was slippin on n off giving me no pressure up top .. I had to remove my lower dash panel in order to get visual n hand access to this pin , it is a tight spot to work in as well . May be easist to remove the 4 14mm bolts that hold yur driver seat in to give ya more room to work n stretch out ur arms

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.
