    Hi Jill, when you said this was a skidder, my first thought is that those things take a beating driving over rough terrain, rocks, stumps, that the linkages could get banged, bent and just dont move freely. I hope your issue is as simple as just freeing that linkage up!

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.

SOURCE: NO 5TH GEAR IN MY 1995 MITS 3000,NO NOISE,NO PROBLEMS SHIFTING

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.

SOURCE: oscillating vibration around 60-70 mph in 6th gear

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.

Transmission problem with a 2007 Mazda cx7


This indicates a problem in the transmission control module as it is not activating the solenoids/servos and consequently the sensors that read turbine speed and output shaft speed are not reading the correct difference of the two units . Have this checked out at an accredited auto transmission shop.

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.
