I need help trying to figure out why my 2004 DX Civic 3rd gear grinds wen i shift? Its a manual transmision and it began bout 1 month ago wen i would shift at higher RPM, not red lining though. Now it grinds at low RPM.

Do you have a short shifter? I have the short shifter bracket and when I don't line up perfect when I shift about 6k, sometimes my 3rd gear will grind.
