Hi, it might be worth getting your gear selector checked as these have a nylon/plastic ball at the bottom now if this has worn down then when you try selecting a gear it will cause the problem your having.(its under neath the gearstick before it links to the two selector rods so check this.)

Also worth checking alot of cars where the two rods come from the selector and then their is two rods going to the gear box one of these is fixed and cant be adjusted but the other rod can be adjusted and its often the case that this adjustment can take up the play and solve your problem.
The problem with this is that it can be adjusted forwards and backwards it slides when you undo the bolt that goes through it so make sure you can mark exactly where the selector is where you can adjust it so that you can set it back their if it makes it worse or no differance.
If yours can be adjusted then make sure you mark where it is now then just move it a small bit at a time one way and then give it a try if no differance then move it a bit more if it gets worse then put it back where it was originally then try going the other way see if it makes any differance if not then it wont be adjustment problem.
If neither of these are problem then the chances are the gears have stripped and this would give you the problem your having as the faster you go the harder it is for the teeth to locate on the correct gear in the box.

As for stripping the box it isnt really worth doing as the parts would be expensive and would cost as much as a second hand gear box.
The best option would be a reconditioned gear box as you know that it has be rebuilt with any new parts needed and you should also get some warranty on it which is always a bonus.

Are you sure the clutch is ok test this by having the car running and at a standstill with the hand brake on put car into 2nd gear and with the handbrake on gently let the clutch up slowly and see if it feels like its slipping if the clutch is ok then the car will stall this is what will happen if the clutch is ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you have any problems or questions and ill assist you the best i can ok.

Sounds like a failed bearing or bad syncronizers. Will require trans disassembly to determine failure.

SOURCE: 06 ford focus 5spd. no 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear.

It sound like the gear linkage isn,t set up right, you wouldn,t always be able to engage a gear unless you rocked the car.

SOURCE: boxer van gear select problem

need to feel it ,could be clutch ,if it goes in without the running then its the clutch.But i think your problem is more like the linkage and if its a builders van,then you could have rubble dropped down inside the gearchange boot.???Boxer isnt the gearchange on the dash on this model??if so then the problem could be the linkage cable ,--they get a bit rusty and sticky and you can only buy a complete pair as one unit .Try oiling with a proper oil can and some engine oil ,and not that obnoxous fish oil wd stuff

YEP INSUFFICIENT TRANSMISSION OIL WILL CAUSE DIFFICULTY ENGAGING GEARS. THE GEAR OIL COULD BE OLD NEED CHANGING ALSO CHECK FOR LOOSE OR DAMAGED SHIFT LINKAGES.

Transmission oil was low, so we added to fill level and it helped for 1st, and a little in 3rd, but still no 5th gear


Assuming this is a manual shift transmission then 5th has probaly melted due to no lube.5 th gear is smaller on the countershaft and does not dip into the sump as far.So it is the first to loose oil when trans is low.If this is a 5 speed auto like on the 04 up accords and odessy vans then clutches are most likely damaged.Either way you are gonna need transmission repair.Good luck!
