    when changing gears in my prleude, i get this cranky feel and sometimes
    it's really a struggle switching gears on high revs (4000 +). How can i
    solve this problem Please ...

    Since manual transmissions run on MTF, when did you last change the
    Manual Transmission Fluid?

    make sure you have the clutch properly adjusted to get _full_
    disengagement. and learn the natural speed of the box. you can't hurry
    the shift - the synchro won't let you. as curly says, make sure you use
    the correct mtf.

    Another thought . . The clutch fluid is supposed to be changed every
    time you get your brakes done, but maybe it hasn't been changed (or even
    topped up) in a few years? read the manual for interval and inspection

    It's possible that your clutch isn't completely disengaging. I'd
    suggest bleeding your clutch lines to make sure there is no air in them
    getting in the way of pressure on the clutch pedal making it to the
    clutch plate.

    You may also want to check to see if your master and slave clutch
    cylinders are in good shape.

    Hope this helps.
