Question about Cars & Trucks
Check your linkages are tight. When you shift it into 5th or 6th, is it really moving or shifting it into 5th or 6th. I'd start there. If it appears to be pushing to 5th and 6th then the issue may be inside the tranny. Something worn, or blocking full travel.

I have the same problem. on the passenger side under the fender you will have access to the transmission. Remove the cap on the end. You will need to drain the transmission fluid and replace all the gears in the end cap if damaged hopefully they are not and you can just tighten up the nut. What happens is a nut comes loose and backs off the pressure on the bearings and you loose 5th. I removed the entire transmission and opened it up. There is nothing wrong with the other gears, because your problem is with the 5th gear synchronizer assembly. I let mine go too long and I'm having to replace everything. Make sure you put the appropriate torque on the nut and hit it with a hammer to lock it down. This should really be designed with a different method of keeping that nut in place. It's costing me lots of time and now money at the stealership. Good LUCK.

sounds like a cv joint to me. That is what usually occurs when one is showing wear. C.V joints usually wear out between 80,000 and 120,000 k.m.
