Check ur engine brackets, one of them might be giving u problems (its one long shot to be honest), but most likely the synchronizer cone on that gear is causing the problem, they wear on the inside and because of simple vibration they "let go" ur gear... u need to open the gearbox and have them check, i am assuming that ur gearbox is manual...
hope this helps

My 2002 Kia manyual transmission pops out of fifth gear


this is caused by severe transmission wear, you are going to need the trans torn down and rebuilt, sorry but that is the only way to fix this right.

Yeah you might need a new tranny. Not even replacing the fluids or changing the filter will help bc it would make it even worse by flushing away metal parts in your gears which would eventually cause slippage then failure.

Can't change to fifth gear. other gears are fine and engine sounds smooth enough. its a 2003 polo actually, not golf. 1.2, manual, petrol


selector forks on the fifth gear are worn out but don,t let a garage take the gearbox out it can be fixed in place . had the same problem on my golf mk3 vr6 get the parts from a scrap yard should take about half an hour in the right hands to fix

5th gear with 1996 VW Polo


hi mandy
im dave
if it only revs when you put it in 5th gear then it is not in fifth gear. it may look like it but it is not. try moving the gear selector from fourth into neutral releasing the clutch fully then applying the clutch and initiating fifth gear. if that does not work try placing it into one of the other gears first without releasing the clutch and then selecting fifth.
you should be fine driving in four gears as long as you dont travel on the audobahn or at speeds like your on the audobahn. Just watch your redline. try not to go past it. i think it is actually better for your car to drive at higher revolutions than lower as it cleans out your combustion chamber of carbon. on the other hand it is ******* your engine to drive in the red line constantly.
but 3000 rpm in 4th gear probably has you driving 130km/hr (82mph) which should be sufficient and your redline probably does not start until somewhere between 4-5k
