i have a Acura rsx type s. I have no third gear. When I put it in it’s like neutral, I don’t have 5th or 6th gear. It grinds so I don’t force it in. I know something major is wrong, but I have to make it to see my dad about 3 hours away from where I live. He’s in icu. All I need to know is what can I do to ensure I at least make it there… or close to there. Should I try to get it in sixth even tho it grinds a little? I know everyone is going to say don’t drive it but I don’t have another way and I have to make it there to see him.

When I installed my Cold Air Intake in the past, I found out that it got in the way of the gear shifters. Preventing me from getting into my 3rd gear and partially my 5th gear. In the end, I was able to lazily position my CAI to give the shift links space, but just barely, so the CAI pipe got gouged eventually.

You can see this inside the engine bay, there might possibly be something that the shift links are bumping into.
