2003 Carrera Coupe Shifting to 4th Gear Problem at 64K Mile

Transmission and Clutch

Model: 996, Year:2003, Mileage:64,000, Type of use:Street use only
I bought my 2003 Carrera couple in 2008 at 60K mile. Recently I have been experiencing a problem at 4th gear shifting. It shifts normal to 1st,2nd,3rd gears but occasionnaly it does not shift smoothly to 4th gear. It feels like something is in the way followed by grinding. Again, this does not happen all the time but even when I am able to shift to 4th gear, it is not the same compared to any other gear. It shifts OK to 5th gear. The car is currently at Autosport Performance Inc who services imports in Englewood NJ. I have a repair contract with a 3rd party company called Easy Care. I bought the contract with the car. It is expiring at the end of this month. I am hoping that this is covered under that contract. Do I need a transmission rebuilt? In ball park estimate how much do you think this is going to cost me in your opinion? Your help is greatly appreciated. I have not heard from the shop yet regarding their diagnosis and the cost.
