It could well be a sealed system like my 540. If the car is not at normal temperature, mine won't go above 4th and make sure the selector is beside the D mark and not the 4 mark.

Change shift linkage on 93 sentra


More than likely it's not the linkage. Sounds like the fourth to fifth synchronizer is very badly worn, which will cause the shifter to "pop out" of fifth gear.
