    This is not a sncro problem, it's a lubricant problem. Check to see if you have the right type and amount of tranny fluid in it.

    the transmission has synchronizers inside it - they help smooth the shifts and when they are failing they also make noise ( whirring - chirping - grinding in that order ) hard shifting can also be the linkage ( external and internal )

    sorry at work - a clutch badly out of adjustment can also make shifting difficult
