Sounds like your synchro is frozen. Sometimes you can free it by putting it in gear as far as it will go and letting out the clutch quickly.

SOURCE: 5th. Gear

Sounds like you may have bent a shift fork or your cluster gear has some missing teeth on it now. I would venture to say that is it a bent shift fork. This will require the transmission be removed to gain access to inspect and repair.

SOURCE: won't go into gear to drive. may be transmission?

If the clutch has never been changed most likely it is that. The way you can check it is by removing the transmission and looking at the clutch disc. It could be transmission syncros but I am willing to bet you just need a new clutch.

1996 Ford Ranger xlt manual transmission can"t shift into 3rd and 4th gear


If it grinds when trying to shift, it is the synchronizers. Rebuild. If it pops out of gear. there is a plastic part at the top of the transmission that wears out. It fits around the ball of the shifter. It is two pieces. You'll have to remove the floor plate and pull it up to access the bolts to remove the shifter and replace those plastic pieces.

Manual Transmission loud metal noise 5th gear doesn't work


check the drain plug magnet for metal bits . If any the box has to come out 4.th gear is straight shaft connection and 5 gear connects from the cluster shaft up to the out put shaft . On either side is a rear main bearing and from your description if that bearing is failed then the 4th gear syncro will not align properly and the gear for 5th will be out of alignment so the syncro to work will not work

Chevrolet 5 speed manual transmission stuck in gear


First I would try to pop it out by rocking it back and forth with engine off! Have a couple friends help you push it back and forth hard (ignition OFF) while you try hard to pop it out. If you cannot get it, and you have no experience with trans, call a local ****** shop. They may tow it in cheap. Get a recipt for the max your insurance reimburses. Good luck.

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

Sounds like your transmission has come to the end of its life. You can try getting the transmission flushed , and an additive I.E. No Slip added. That might cure some of the problems but obviously if its slipping the clutchs inside are worn out and transmission needs an overhaul.

Sounds like the clutch is going out. I would check the operation of the clutch slave cylinder. Also check the clutch master cylinder fluid level.

Ford transmission wines in 1st 2nd 3rd revers, no


It is a 5 speed manual transmission? If it is noisey in all gears except for 4th, then the problem is countershaft bearings.
