Question about 1995 Hyundai Sonata
When shifting gears from 1st to 2nd it sometimes grinds, same when downshifting
Either your clutch is getting bad, or you're shifting down too soon, and up too late. Try double clutching. Push in your clutch and push it into neutral. Release the clutch, fan the gas pedal, push the clutch again and shift into 1st. All this does is sychronize the speed of the transmission with the speed of the engine. There were, in the 60's, a lot of cars with the old "three on the tree" that you had to do this every time, and you get pretty good at it after a while.

Sounds like your clutch is wearing out or if your car us equipped with a Slave cylinder between you pedal and the clutch mechanism it may be getting weak or leaking..not allowing full clutch depression..and the gear grinding...good luck
