SOURCE: Pops out of 5th gear
This is most likely not a linkage issue. This is an internal transmission issue. Inside the transmission there are some brass pieces that synchronize the gears when you depress the clutch. This is also a tell tell sign that the one between 4th and 5th gear is worn out or completely chewed up. The transmission will need to be repaired or completely rebuilt depending on how much damage has been done to the internal components. sorry about delivering bad news but that's the facts on vehicles that have been driven hard. Hope this information helps you. Good luck.

I cant tell you why but I do have a solution for you to try, I had a similar fault on a fiat punto last year, I disconnected the battery for an hour and then put it back and the car started, Im still puzzled by this but It may work for you, worth ago, make sure you have your radio code before removing the battery
Hope this helps
