Try having the clutch adjusted and check the fluid under the shifter and the rear end on the axle also.

5 speed manual transmission wont stay in 5th gear ,


can be lots of things,,, 4wd or 2wd, must i guess that?

let me guess, easy, and cheap first. ok? no need to go hog wild on guessing, at your expense ,no?>



  1. all vitara/tracker/sidekicks, all have the 2 plastic fittings in the shift box, go, well, to dust, or crack, and then the shift lever bounces and goes out of gear or in fact was never fully in 5th gear, detents.


  2. loose bottom rear transmission mount, (beat to death)


  3. shift rails failing, (detent failure (springs and balls)


  4. burned up fork on 5th gear, due to running trans dry. or near or GL4 fluild looks like, tar and metal filings ; ever consider do ing the service on that, drain and fill, running it on 24year old gear lube?


  5. the 2 front rubber plugs love to fall out (glued in) and then GL4 slowly is lost and gears/bearings and forks are wrecked.


  6. bad 5th gear bearing, rear.


  7. bad 5th gear front bearing. if flops about, and jumps out of gear.


  8. 5th gear synchro ring, broken, causing ill fitting 5th gear DOGS








bearing 30 and 31 are the 2 bearings mention above.

the last guy with 5th failing gear 35 , spins were wrecked.

running trans near dry,. expensive fix. with new cluster 26



see plastic 27 below.

that page even shows how to run and shift trans with extension housing off, to prove the box is good or bad, such a deal , no ?

Jumps out of 5th gear


syncro is a little round instead of square liped

1 too many grinders usually requires a rebuild of the trans or go to auto recyclers and get a new used trans

WELL IT SOUND LIKE YOUR TRANS IS GOING DOWN YOU NEED TO LOOK AT TRANS FLUID TO SEE IF IT IS CLEAR LOOKING OR IS IT LOOK LIKE METAL MAY BE IN IT DRAIN A LITTLE IN A PAN THE LOOK AT IT IN SOME LIGHT AND SEE IF IT LOOKS LIKE GOLD FLAKES OR SHING METEL IF SO TRANS HAS INTERNAL ISUSES

2004 Nissan Maxima Intermittent Transmission Problem?


I don't know exactly how the nissans work with their "limp" mode for what gear it goes into and such. This sounds like the computer is sensing a problem and going into the "limp" mode. Go get the code pulled to see what is says. If it has anything saying trans slipping or ratio problem then something internal in the the trans is wrong. Also, check the trans fluid and see if its burnt ( dark brown or black).
