    I am finding the odd gears and the clutch pretty annoying since morning. When i try the 1,3,5 gear i feel that the gear shifts are not happening properly and are not smooth plus the clutch is also a bit hard

    How old is your car? Month and year of make, Kilometers done.

    Is your clutch slave cylinder plastic or metallic one? Looks to be clutch slave cylinder issue.

    My car is going to Fortune Nerul today for a similar issue - all the gear's are hard to shift and sometimes the reverse gear engages with a grinding sound.

    It happens in my car too. Sometimes it feels like the problem is solved and gears feel butter smooth but a day or so later the problem recur's. Last week the car was taken to Fortune and the problem miraculously disappeared as soon as the technicians checked the car! :A

    The Gears of my punto have become so hard that it feels impossible to shift to the odd gears. It was good that not all the gears were jammed..I somehow managed to drive 60Kms yesterday with the same.
