I have a 1993 Nissan D21 Pickup 5speed manual 4x4. Engine seems to run strong tranny shifts smooth but in first gear only there is a sound which almost sounds like the tranny is knocking. I cant feel anything though it is still smooth but can definetly hear it.
Thanks for your time.

2nd gear will not enter whether from 1st to 2nd or 3rd to 2nd and truck will vibrate (when trying to shift from 1st to 2nd) on my 1987 Nissan pickup d21 Z24 manual transmission.

I suspect a failed bearing or synchro assembly in the transmission
check that by removing the drain plug and checking the magnet for metal bits
if there are particles then it is a box out for rebuild

1993 NIssan D21 manual 4x4 shakes alot on take off and anytime there is heavy torque loads. After 1st gear, very little if any shaking.

I think you have checked the major points, but if the transmision hung loose long enough it could damage the U-joints and motor mounts. The easy way to check the u-joint is to put the truck on ramps and put it in gear, then get under the truck and attempt to turn the drive line. If the drive line move 1/4 turn or more the u-joints are damaged. The motor mounts can be checked when the motor is running. Standing over the motor while someone else revs the motor you can see the motor move from side to side, more than three inch movement could indicate loose or broken mount. The clutch may be the culprit but I would check these first.

Transmission going bad?

popping out of gear means your shifting forks need adjustment, same as the grinding. the tranny is probably good, just the top part, the shifting mechanism needs to be repaired, so it would be cheaper to repair than rebuilding the whole transmision.still, im guessing about 300-500$ depending where you live.
