Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup
This is not a problem to fix but does need the transmission removed. The reason for the grinding into gear is something called a "synchro". A brass ring which at speeds allows the gears to align and mesh to engage. The gear may still be good but the synchro needs to be changed. I would have the transmission repiared by a local and trusted transmission repair shop who can also offer a warranty. This will probably take around $100 in parts and another $300- $350 in labor provided everything is in good working order, which is sounds like it is. It will require a visual inspection to be accurate. Let me know if you need further advice or if you think you are getting ripped off by a shop.
