2002 LS coupe manual trans. I am first time car owner, very noob. I got this car from an auction. everything works well except i cant figure out how to reverse. all gears from 1 to 5 works good. Ok, first I stepped on the clutch and pulled the stick to reverse position (driver's far right, bottom). When i slowly released the clutch pedal and slightly stepped on the gas pedal, the engine revved up but the stick bounced back to neutral by itself. if i used my hand to hold the stick in the reverse position to prevent it from boucing back to neutral while slowly releasing the clutch, i heard some loud noise of two rough surfaces rubbing against each other. does it look like something needs to be replaced/fixed? and how much would it cost (approx.)? or do I need to do some trick to get it to reverse?
