SOURCE: 1991 sentra, manual 5speed, hard to find reverse and 5th

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.

Wont go into any gears


Have you had someone watch the shift levers on the transmission to see if they are moving when you are inside the car ?
You should be able to put the transmission into a gear from under the hood.
Could be a problem with the clutch.

1993 Suburu reverse and 5th gear problems


I think the problem is most likely in the shift linkage, manyually shift it into reverse at the trans (bypass shifter) and see if it goes in, is the shifter loose or has allot of play?
