Shop one of your pick and pull yards for a tranny. You will diffenatly have to pull it out to fix the gear,unless it is just in the shifter which won't press the shifter fork in the transmission far enough press the 5th gear into mesh(or into gear).
Sounds more like it might be in the gear shifter. Linkage worn or stretched, or a bushing out of the linkage. Take the plastic console off and look at the action of the shifter if it has alot of freeplay when trying to put it into 5th gear I would say, Get a junk yard shifter.
If you go into transmission It has to be pulled out of car to dissassemble it and it really is a job for a transmission specialist. Get a Junk yard tranny and just replace it. They usually give a gaurantee of some sort with the tranny.

Try this. Try double clutching the shift. If this works, and you can get the shift to go without any other problems the most likely the syncros are gone on 4'th gear. If that is the case then you either fix the syncros or learn how to match engine and tranny for that gear.
There could only be a couple possibilities for this to happen. First, with standard shift transmissions the shifter linkage could be worn being that it only happens with 3rd and 5th gears, as this shifter slide works for both of these gears. If this is the case it is only a matter of visually inspecting the linkage for worn or broken parts and replacing them or adjusting the linkage which is the inexpensive fix that I hope you are looking at. Second, This could be caused by the syncronizers within the transmission are going bad/worn or broken. In either case the transmission will need to be removed and repaired or replaced which is the expensive route that I pray is not the way you have to go! I hope that this is some help.
check the drain plug magnet for metal bits. Mostly you can remove the rear extension housing with out removing the gear box and you will find a small gear on the cluster shaft ( bottom shaft) and a larger gear on the out put shaft ( tail shaft) . Check that the shifter fork is actually moving the larger gear or gear dog into 5th gear (Fork loose on selector rail) or check that there are still teeth on the smaller gear as excessive high speed under load will rear out the teeth
old car. 5th gear? is this M/T? 1987 ? A/T? is 4speed
what does stopped working mean . 1: shifter fails to select 5 gear H pattern slot. 2: grinds? 3: cant force it to 5th with clutch depressed.? is free play at spec? 4: raise front wheels off ground, can you get in to 5th now? keyout and running? 5: can you get into 5th parked engine off, and select 5th and then start car in 5th with clutch depresses first step. then slowly very slowly attempt to move car starting in 5th, but dont finish, just feel the gear, feel that its there and not neutral.
yes...Sounds like the shifter points are way off...to reach that you need to remove the center console the connecter in under the shifter...the other end of the cable feeds through the dashboard and connects to the tranny from under neath...
changing 5th gear on most manual gearboxes can be done without removal of the gearbox ,remove the inner wing and then access is quite easy ,take the rear cover off the back of the gearbox undo a nut or bolt on a stud and then gear selector can be removed and then a circlip at the end of the shaft and of it all comes ,
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!
