Transmission pops out of 5th gear

My 1987 Nissan Pulsar manual transmission has begun popping out of 5th gear occasionally at highway speeds 60-65mph.

It has just started doing this and this morning was much worse but it was very cold (4 degrees F.)

Troubleshooting / temporary or permanent repair suggestions?

The synchro's in your transmission are shot. Time to replace them or the transmission fully.

My 92 Nissan NX2000 coupe won't go into gear, it pops out and now it just grinds...what could be wrong?


Its not fluid levels and it is not syncro's. Its a defective 5th gear. Sorry to say man but it's shot. This is not an easy fix or a cheap one (unless you are doing it yourself). Looking at $400 just in parts. I had this happen to me. I have done a ton of research and found comprehensive information that has educated me on this common problem in these transmissions. What has happened is the teeth on the 5th gear have worn down to a point that it will no longer allow it to catch and stay in gear. Anytime it is put under any kind of load it will just pop out. Why does this happen to countless Nissan NX and Sentra owners? Faulty engine and transmission mounts. So it is also recommended to replace all 4 mounts in your car when doing this fix. Here is a Web address that will take you to a forum that will describe the problem, what parts need to be replaced, where you can buy them and how to replace them if you chose to do that. You will save yourself about $600 in labor. If you don't choose to not do it yourself you will at least be able to give the mechanic a detailed description of what is going on and how to fix it. Here is the web address. Good luck. http://www.sr20-forum.com/general-maintenance/18390-how-recognise-repair-5th-gear-pop-out-b13-b14-transmission.html

1. occasionally over heat 2.gear lever pulling out


If just occasionally overheats and only in 100 degree weather, possible sticking thermostat, debris buildup on the exterior core of the radiator, corrosion buildup on the interior of the radiator core, low coolant level or insufficient fan cooling capabilities.
if you shifter is pulling out of gear when you hit the throttle that is call pop-out. This usually happens in 5th gear so it is called fifth gear pop out. Anyway, this is an internal transmission problem that can be fixed but will require pulling the tranny and opening it up.
please vote if this helps

Just bought the car cheap and the gear stick is 5 speed and selects 5th gear but when driving and in 5th gear its like in netual and the gear selectors bushing is worn bodjed sum tape on it and still...


On these WC Volkswagens, you have to make sure that the little ball-and-socket gear linkages are connected. If one is off, replace it with new, because the old one will probably pop off again. If there is no problem there and you can select 5th gear, and then only later does it "pop out" of gear, then the spline lock rings have worn where the mating surfaces of each spline tip don't provide a positive "lock" when under power. Some folks think that when a transmission "pops out" when driving, it is the syncronizers. This is never true. (Even Click and Clack get this one wrong continuously.) The syncronizers are responsible for clashing gears during the gear selecting action.
A transmission rebuild is in order if the thing pops out of gear. Good luck.

Pops out of 5th gear


You're 5th gear syncro has just gone out. It keeps your shift forks and slider gear from popping off. It also makes it possible to shift the gear in. It's going to take a rebuild of the transmission to fix this problem.
