never hurts, also check your master/slave cyl for leaks.
Use good fluid Red line is the best, but there are others out there that are decent

If clutch is not completely disengaging it will be more difficult to select a gear. Check clutch pedal adjustment per the factory service manual.

Worn shifter bushings can make it difficult to select the correct gear. Adding a short shifter will exacerbate the issue.

There is a metal shifter bushing that is available from Mazda Motorsports. If you are into fast shifting, it would be a good investment.
