    Suzuki Aerio 5sp manual makes a rasping noise when accelerating in 4th and 5th gears or when engine under load. Worse in 5th gear than in 4th. Stops on lifting off gas and cruising on level road.

Sounds like you may have bent a shift fork or your cluster gear has some missing teeth on it now. I would venture to say that is it a bent shift fork. This will require the transmission be removed to gain access to inspect and repair.

Making noise like gear is rubbing something in 5th gear only. It starts & stops with every gear rotation

Drain the oil out of your manual tranny into a CLEAN bucket. Run your fingers through it. Does it look like you've got splotches of silver paint? If so, your tranny's bearings and/or gears may be wearing out.

Manual transmission grinds/crackles in 5th gear

The syncronizers and blocker ring are damaged some stores like auto zone have a super synthetic gear lube I had this problem in my 95 wrangler and the problem went away. Its going to be hard to find tranny parts for that car I just put a new tranny in from the junk yard with 70k miles for $200 its in perfect operating condition.
