Shifts into gear hard sometimes?

I've got a 2002 rs and my shifter doesn't go back to center by itself if I move it left or right and when I put it into gears it sometimes is hard going into the gear I replaced the fluid with Amsoil fluid last year sometime as well. It seems to be better when I drive it for a while or if it's warm out but it will still go into gear a little hard sometimes regardless. Could the problem be the cable bushings? I've lubed the cables a few times which helps somewhat for a month or 2. I also replaced the master and slave cylinders with direct parts from Mitsubishi

check out this post , 6th picture down is the return spring which places the shifter back into the middle when you are out of gear.

if you check out the second picture down, that is your shift control housing. see the only rusted circle in the picture? you should be able to push that in if the car is in neutral and it should return to its orignal position when not pressed.

also try making sure all bolts holding the shifter assembly in the trans is secure and make sure your shifter bushings arent oval shaped.

hope this helps

i would assume if that doesnt happen then its a start to finding your issue, hope this helps
