It'll grind if you shift into from 1st (unless you shift at like 1500rpms)

It'll grind if the car is idling and you shift it into 2nd for whatsoever reason (If you try to put it in gear without the clutch during idle itll grind, any other gear it feels like a wall is stopping and you can hear the engine drop a few rpms if you push hard enough)

@Patrick mad? I cant picture you mad lol

Annnnnd I started my car and I saw the CEL flash as my car accelerated itself like I ran it without the ICV and Plugged it back in where it revs itself for a few seconds. Ken is right, theres some type of voodoo going under my hood
Sounds like the 2nd gear synchro is on it's way out. Try double clutching (like vin diesel). It shouldn't grind when you do that.
