your 3rd gear syncro is probably going.. try changing the transmission fluid to Redline MT-90 and it will probably help stop the grinding. it did on my 2.0 (2nd gear)

Baby? My '98 needed a tranny rebuild and a new clutch after only 37k miles... http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif Not sure what your problem is... But it does sound like a syncro since the other gears aren't crunching too.
hi, i heard that you had your tranny rebuilt. I am having problems with my gear popping out, i was wondering where you had your tranny rebuilt and how much did it cost...i'm in desperate need of fixing my car! thanx
