Probably ice jammed up in there. Can you get it inside & get some heat to it somehow?

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual

best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

Manual Transmission seems to be stuck in low range. Transfer case in 2wd high range, however when transmission is shifted to 5th gear still only going 25 mph at 4000pm. Clutch seems to be engaging and...

The transfer case is stuck in the low range. If manual shift try shifting from low to high several times to see if free up. If electronic, check all fuses and make sure you hear transfer case change range. Do this by shifting with key on engine off. If no change refer to qualified transmission mechanic.

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

Pops out of 5th gear

This is most likely not a linkage issue. This is an internal transmission issue. Inside the transmission there are some brass pieces that synchronize the gears when you depress the clutch. This is also a tell tell sign that the one between 4th and 5th gear is worn out or completely chewed up. The transmission will need to be repaired or completely rebuilt depending on how much damage has been done to the internal components. sorry about delivering bad news but that's the facts on vehicles that have been driven hard. Hope this information helps you. Good luck.
