Question about Honda Civic
Check that all your engine and gearbox mounts are in good order,also check the socket and mount that holds the gear lever in place on the remote.You could also remove either the level plug(it is a bolt) on the side of the gearbox or remove the speedo head on the top of gbox and ensure that oil level is good.I have had a car in the workshop that did this intermittently.Eventually pulled the gearbox out and found that a couple of the fingers off the pressure plate had broken off.It had gear select and jam probs every time that they lodged into mechanism of the p.plate,but drove fine when they had dislodged.There was no rattling noise from them so it was hard to diagnose at first.
Hope this helps

If the car will go into reverse fine then you do not have a clutch issue.1st and 2nd gear are on the same shift rail and share a syncronizer hub.I understand you probaly dont know what those things are and that is not important.It is possible that you have a bad syncro hub since this is the busiest hub in the transmission .I would first suspect a linkage issue and would have someone look there first.Manual Honda transmission are nearly bullet proof.I fix 100 automatics to every 1 honda manual.
