Default Gears Grindind

2003 nissan 350z, so my question is why would my gears only grind in 3rd and fourth? So when i get to 3rd it usually always grinds 4th no to much but 1st, 2'nd, 5th, and 6'th are fine and get in gear fine i'm thinking the synchronizer but i'm not to sure any suggestions ?

Probably syncros.

Some Z trannys are netorious for that.

Very common problem. Synchros are shot.

I would first change the fluid and see if it helps the situation, considering it is the cheapest "fix"

Get Redline MT-85 and see how it works.
