It's one of these things. 1) You need secranizers for the gears you mentioned.(might as well put in a new Transmission) 2) The throw-out bearing is bad.3) The clutch is not ingauging enough for the gears to not want to go into smoothly.
Best Of Luck,

P.S. I reread your information again. If it changes well out of the car then I would think it is the clutch itself causing the shifting issues.

It is a clutch problem. Do you know if you have a hydraulic clutch or a clutch cable? If you have a cable, it might need adjusted. If you have hydraulic you might have a bad slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder.

Sounds like inside the gearbox As its 2gears i would be looking at these problems first. Fifth and reverse are on same shaft 1) clutch fault 2) lay shaft broken or bearing carrier. Collapsed 3)synchro blocker rings worn

Change shift linkage on 93 sentra


More than likely it's not the linkage. Sounds like the fourth to fifth synchronizer is very badly worn, which will cause the shifter to "pop out" of fifth gear.
