Having problems with your Jeep Liberty ?

I have a 2003 jeep liberty with a manual transmission. It will not go into first gear or into reverse right away. If I am moving, I can coax it into gear.

Sounds like you have a linkage problem, possibly a set of worn bushings or.....the first/reverse syncros are going bad(this requires the transmission to come down and apart)...those transmission syncro items may fall under a power train warrantee, (but possibly not if you are over the mileage and time limits) if the syncros are the problem you may want the clutch assembly looked at for possible wear and tear, and have it replaced at the same time the transmission comes out, if there are a lot of miles on it as well, the labor to replace the clutch is like 75% done once they remove the transmission for repair(mileage varies on clutch wear depending upon how a vehicle is driven, worn clutches can go 25,000 to 60,000 miles before having problems) however i suggest you take it into the dealer to have them diagnose the cause first and to keep you informed before doing any further repairs.(allow them a set price for diagnostic time which usually is refunded or applied to the repair once the cause is determined)
