Worn engine mounts may let the engine and transmission move too much, also the shift linkages may need adjustment.

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

2002 Ford Escort Manual Trans wont shiftin 3 or 4th gear but can shift into 1st, 2nd, 5th and R. What could the problem be?


If the Linkage is not damaged, you are going to need to pull the Transmission out.

The part that went bad is called the SYNCRO's

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

Check the operation/adjustment of the 5th/Rev gear gate and associated selection levers.
Check 5/R gear lever linkages are operating correctly.

Transmission problems (gear linkage)


The gear linkages are not correctly aligned.
Is the gearbox mounting in exactly the same place as when you removed it?
Even a 1/4 inch will offset the gears.
hope this helps
