Probably a worn gearbox - you should be able to obtain a better one second-hand. Read this, about halfway down

Jumps out of 5th gear

ensure that the gear selector is allowed full movement for full engagement
possible gear synchro dogs teeth are worn and not fully engaging
possible housing is misaligned or rear bearing failure
check for metal bits on the plug magnet
it may require a box out for a partial repair

My van keeps jumping out of gear what is the problem

most likely a manual gear box is it
jumping out of gear indicates the the gear is
not properly engaged --adjust linkages
check gear lever for obstructions in mounted on the tunnel
loose /incorrectly tensionedd bell housing bolts
failed rear engine mounts
drive line vibrations
or possible badly worn gear teeth
jumping out of gear is when the mating gears are not exactly in line and the slight angle makes one gear walk out of mesh with the other.

1999 Chevy Tracker 4x4 shifter jumps out of gear

? I'm taking a long shot here.... check the transmission mount.... if the trans were to move around (due to a bad mount) it could cause this problem.

It jumps out of first gear or will not stay in first gear when trying to engage

Your trans has a mechanical problem. Could be a couple of reason for jumping out of gear, but it will have to be removed from the vehilcel and tore down no matter what is causing the issue. Sorry for the bad news.

Changed motor and tranny hooked up all the wires gets power to the starter i jump it with a screw driver and the starter turns but it does not engage

sounds like the solenoid is not engaging the gear with the flywheel, take the starter out and check it on the bench to see if the gear is sliding foreward when you engage it

Gear does not engage first thing on mornings, engine revs and then jumps into gear. Car has to warm up for approx 5 min or more for gear to engage normally..

You have a possible failing transmission, if u have a Aamco Transmission repair shop near by have them road test it, they *** it fro free

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

Transmission i think

Sounds like clutch. The clutch is almost gone and worn unevenly, so if you baby it, it will stay engaged if you put alot of stress on it like up a hill it will slip. This symptom is the warning sign, it will get worse as to where you can't engage any gear. The more it slips the quicker it will fail.
