Hi my Dad has a Daewoo minivan from the year 2000 and the battery keeps going flat. Is there anything about this type of car that would cause the battery to go flat so easily? He is also experiencing...


Only thing I can suggest re battery going flat, is a check of alternator charging, but it is also entirely possible that battery itself has a dead cell and is not capable of holding a charge properly overnight.The latter is more likely, as with a failed alternator, when you presumably jump-start the vehicle, at that point, with both a low battery and dead alternator, car should stall again soon after you disconnect jumper battery.
With the gearbox issue, just sounds like weak synchromesh.

Polo 1.3 1985 keeps jumping out of fifth gear whats wrong


check ur engine brackets, one of them might be giving u problems (its one long shot to be honest), but most likely the synchronizer cone on that gear is causing the problem, they wear on the inside and because of simple vibration they "let go" ur gear... u need to open the gearbox and have them check, i am assuming that ur gearbox is manual...
hope this helps

Yeah you might need a new tranny. Not even replacing the fluids or changing the filter will help bc it would make it even worse by flushing away metal parts in your gears which would eventually cause slippage then failure.

I have a 96 f150 5.0 4x4 that wont shift into fifth gear


I had that problem once on a much older vehicle, I don't know if they build them the same way now but my problem was a bad sirclip. It was worn and would not hold the gear in place.

Hope this helps.

Fifth gear lock-out


You should have fifth gear. There is no fifth gear lock out. Most likely it's not going into fifth gear, due to play in the shifter, or play in the linkages.
