First off lets not fight, second off yes this is probebly a worn out 1st gear synchro ring, third yes changeing the fluid will help, and finally changing the fluid is much faster, cheaper, and easier that inspecting the tranny and most likely changing the worn out 1st gear synchro ring. BTW to who ever may be changing their tranny fuild remember FIRST take out the FILL plug and THEN the drain plug, also you will need a VERY short 17mm hex and the capacity is between 1.0 and 2.0 quarts.
