If it is as simple as changing the oil then ill go for it but it just seems a bit to simple, all along iv thought it is the selector bushes?

Hey all, im new to this site and I recently bought a clio 1999 model and I seem to have problems going into 1st and 2nd gear. its driving me nuts, because it stops me from moving off or speeding up. the 2nd gear is the worst, it doesnt seem to click in, and it can be quite tough puttin it into second gear.

any advice would be appreciated :D
