SOURCE: No 5th gear

Do you mean that the shifter moves normally, and no gear engages, or the shifter won't go into the 5th gear position?
If the shifter won't go there, its probably a mis-adjusted linkage.
If it will go there, but you don't "feel" it go into gear, it could be that the ball and socket linkage rod for 5th gear has popped loose(this is common on higher mileage VWs with worn shifter parts) I recommend an entire shift bushing set be installed and then the proper adjustments can be made... Hope this helps...;-)

SOURCE: 1982 rabbit shift linkage

There is a plastic ball that is in the shift linkage that also wears and is usually not included in the shift linkage bushing kit. It is attached to a metal piece and is bolted to the shift linkage. This is generally the problem if you already replaced the bushings.

Sometimes the linkage is out of adjustment but I would make sure that the ball is not worn first. They generally cost $5.00 - $8.00 or so.

If you need to adjust the linkage you can try the following, but if the bushings or the ball is worn adjustment will not do any good.

There is an adjustment on the shift rod that goes from the shifter to the transmission. It is a rod slipped into a tube with a locking collar or clamp.

The way that I do this is to make sure that your vehicle is in 1st gear and then loosen the bolt on the clamp.

Make sure that the clamp is loose enough so that the shaft can slip in the tube. Put the shifter in the 1st gear position and then tighten the clamp.

You may need to fiddle with this a little to get it in just the right spot.

This is much easier if you have an assistant.

SOURCE: Car stuck in Park, wont switch gears

check to see if the brake lights come on it may be a problem with a brake switch under the dash not letting the shift lock release. there may be a seperate switch just for it so check and see it there is two switches touching the brake pedal lever if the brake lights come on.

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
