Question about 2005 Acura TL
Got this car 6 months ago with 85k on it, excellent condition. Noticing the manual shift from 2nd to 3rd gear grinds on high RPM and also sometimes i have to push it harder to get in gear. Also manual transmission feels clunky, but gets very smooth after driving for an hour. Any suggestions?
Well you bought a second hand car we never know what the old owner did to this car maybe he redlined into vetch a lot or he never changed the transmission oil or it could be the clutch.. But my first guess would be to change the transmission oil acura requires there transmission oil to be changed every 70k miles but please make sure to do it with a professional reputable mechanic. I hope this helps

If this is a manual / stick shift gear box it could be the 3rd gear synchronizing cone is worn out , you need to inspect and probably need to change it had this problem with my Nissan Datsun 120Y

SOURCE: Gear shifting problem
The 1st thing to do is have a test run on the transmission control module to see if any trouble codes are present, next have you ever serviced the transmission, fluid and filter change, should be done at 60,000 miles, on occasion this can cure problems like yours.

If the whine is there than the main bearing is already worn adding fluid will not save it, you will have to swap it or rebuild it. sorry i know you were hoping for something better.

Sound like a problem with the trasmission switches; coudl scannedt the TCM to know is some fault code is stored there. Additionally, I suggest check this DIY about this trans switch in this link: mdx.acurazine.com/forums/showthread
