Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
Manual transmission. Problem is sporadic, happening every other day or every three days. While shifting into 1st, 3rd and 5th gears, it seems spongy and will even fall out of gear. Started with 5th gear but now acting up on 1st and 3rd. Sometimes I have to hold it in gear. Other than that, no issues noticed. Clutch seems normal.
Ok the solution to problem is the shifter bushing is worn out you have to put the shifter to neutral than take the clip out install new bushing put the clip back...remember there is a nut in front of the shifter cable tight it little bit until the cable doesn't move freely.

Start with the firs post and have those cables and linkage assembly looked at if those are good then what you have is a loose bolt on the transmission that bolt is responsible to keep the gear in place when loose the transmission will do what you described as well nothing more nothing less.

Your shifter cables have gona bad, i had the same problem and its not your clutch thats causing the problem. Your shifter cables are just worn out and you need to replace them

I also have a 2009 Outlander Sportronic transmission with a V6 engine.
Bought it this summer ... transmission appeared fine but seemed to automatically slow down the vehicle using the engines compression whenever I let go of the gas pedal.
Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, whenever I accelarate normally (not like a teenager) the transmission takes quite a bit of time to shift into second... If I rev up the engine (quick take off) it seems to help but the shifting of gears is not as smooth as I would expect it (mildly slips and kicks into second)...
The worst is when come to a complete stop ... then the transmission kicks coming down from the higher gears???
I read somewhere that this is because this transmission is a CVT type and is learning my driving habits in order to adjust itself so the vehicle becomes more fuel efficient... Not sure but if the trany is computer controlled then it must be poorly writen program...
I'm taking the car in to the dealer and will write back on the diagnostic they give me ...
