Need to feel it ,could be clutch ,if it goes in without the running then its the clutch.But i think your problem is more like the linkage and if its a builders van,then you could have rubble dropped down inside the gearchange boot.???Boxer isnt the gearchange on the dash on this model??if so then the problem could be the linkage cable ,--they get a bit rusty and sticky and you can only buy a complete pair as one unit .Try oiling with a proper oil can and some engine oil ,and not that obnoxous fish oil wd stuff

My Audi A3 2.0 fsi sline Quattro is struggling to find gears ( very stiff to change and impossible to find reverse with the engine running)

First check the fluid level and make sure it is correct. If it's good you will then need to go to the dealership to have the codes pulled. I hope the problem is the fluid because it will be expensive otherwise.

Mazda Bongo 1997, at times doesnt shift in 1st gear and in reverse, some times not at all unless engine is turned off. Fluid is still full and seems ok. Where should I look for the problem, the clutch

The clutch has an adjustment on the arm that engages the clutch on the side of the transmission. If it won't adjust then the clutch plate is too worn .

1998 GMC Safari only going into 1st gear

The transmission is probably staying in 2nd gear (limp mode) indicating an electronic issue. Your van will have a 4L60-E transmission
