First , are any lights on on the dash?
if check engine light is on, find out what code it is, that may lead to the cause.
secondly what does the fluid look like?

1997 Honda Civic gets stuck in 5th gear

Hi my name is mike ,if it only happens in 5th gear it is more than likely the syncro gear that is causing this the sycro gear is on all the gears and allows the gears to mesh together easily when you shift into gear ,usually it give people the problem when the car has alot of miles onit and its mostly when you try to shift into that gear it will be hard to go in or not go in all the way and then fall out of gear ,this one sounds like it may have rough spots on the syncro and it holds it on gear, it comes out of gear when you speed up and let off because when you speed up then let off it takes some of the pressure off the gear and then it will release ,hope this helps ,most likely you will have to put another transmission in .let me know if you have any Q's
