A lot of the time.

I just put it in another gear then put it in reverse.

Same here. I put it into reverse when I park if I need to back out of the spot I am in. Keep an eye out and see if it gets worse...

as stated it is a problem... with most manuals actually... usually you roll alill to move gears... but you fan pop it into any gear (i usually use 5th / 6th) and go right into R.. no biggie!

The T56 (tranny is used in quite a few cars GMs and Fords) is notorious for this. My last car had a T56 in it too and it did the same thing. Its not the shifter's fault or your car. The price for strength? eh.

I just put in first, run er up to 6K, hit the line lock, dump the clutch, warm up the tires...and then try reverse again. Works every time.
