Runs great. however, when shifting into 5th gear. sometimes grinds and if note eased in perfectly it slips out and grinds. Doesn't pop out once it has definitely shifted into 5th.

Okay, I took the advice of changing the transmission fluid. I also changed the differential front and rear, power steering fluid while they were at it and it definitely runs much better. However, the service place wouldn't put in the higher grade of fluid nor the lube. Cos they can only do the toyota recommendations. Well, its runs great but still having trouble with 5th. You can feel it catch when it finally does. In the meantime, I did some research and discovered that Toyota had a recall on the 95 for linkage problems, the head, and steering rod. Does anyone know where I can start to have Toyota handle this? I am the second owner and not sure what original owners did? Thanks, Debra

5th gear synchronizer shifter

sound to me like a basic sloppy shifter, did you inspect the shifter and all parts associated?
usually the synco dont stop shifts, only causes grinding
unless, it is shattered. (rare that)
it only matches speeds, so if cracked in half , you can shift by
double shifting , like racers and truckers did for years, "crash boxes"

when you shift into 5th gear take it real slow and easy on it this is a result of the syncranizer in fifth gear going out if you take it gentle this will last a while without having to replace it hope this helps you have a great day

the shift linkage may need to be adjusted a bit or the shift forks and engaged gears for 4th and 5th may have worn enough that they need to be inspected and fixed.

Starting to shift hard in to Rev and 5th gear grinds going into 5th and sometimes just will not go into Rev. 2004 mustang.

Sounds like you need a clutch and its possible you have a problem with the shift rail engaging.
