    no slipage, when it engages it runs fine, no lines on dash, its like it slips into nuetral, dont believe its clutch becasue you can engage a lower gear and it will run fine for a while

    It could be for more than one reason.
    Do you feel that car is slipping when it shifts upwards?
    Any lines on dash?
    Do you feel that power is less than it was before?
    Any Smoke when you start the car or while driving?

Most probably you need to check the clutch

    Hello

    You have not answered all my questions , but if there are no slipage in the gear and it just kicks back to 5th gear while driving and manual transmission is working fine , then I would suggest for you to check the turbo unit , and that is some thing you can do yourself , what you need to do is open the pipe that is coming out of the turbo unit , the big hose and check if there are any traces of oil. this is AIR hose and not supposed to have any oil in it at all.

    After that you need to check the Manifold for cracks and if ther is any leak any where in the manifold, that could do that too. you have to be thorough with the Manifold as some times cracka are not too clear.

    I hope that will resolve your problem

Lack of power in 5th and 6th gear at cruising speed, have to downshift and go through gears to obtain higher speed


4th and 5th gears are for use over 45 and 55mph respectively as they are both Overdrive Gears.

If you are above these speeds in these gears when the issue occurs I would suspect Tune-up issues, fuel/air delivery problems, or a drastic change in tire/ wheel size on the vehicle.

Last tune up was?
Air Filter?
Fuel filter?
Checked fuel pressure and volume?

Hyundai 2013 I30 gearbox 'SKLITCH' between 5th and 6th gear


It sounds like BS to me but what do I know. I'm only in this business for 40 years. What they did was put heavy oil in the gear box to try to mask the sound. That's why it is difficult to shift (stiff).

Alway ask for the old parts when a replacement is not visible after repairs!

My 2007 veracruz has a shudder when starting in 1st gear and when shifting into second. Also have a pulsating in 5th and 6th gear at 1400/1500 rpm.Seems like the car is lugging in 5th/6th gear. Could this...


Mine had a *bad*, but intermitent engine shudder (like it was running out of gas) between 30 and 40 mph. After 3 trips to the dealer, it finally did it in front of them. It's quite dramatic, so they admitted that I wasn't just bringing it in for fun and started guessing what was wrong. They found a TSB that recommended starting with one of the O2 sensors, which fixed it perfectly, immediately.

Sounds like yours isn't your engine - but I thought I should say something just in case.

Transmission defects in downshift


With any manual transmission you shouldnt just go from 6th to 4th bc it is bad for the transmission, if i am in 5th gear and i want to go into 3rd i always go from 5th to 4th to 3rd as a preventative maintenance. If you have a defected transmission you should be able to get it warranted by the bmw dealership you bought if from though.
