SOURCE: rav4 gear problem
You need a new 5th gear- luckily this is easy to replace- I did it myself following online directions for 5th gear replacement. The 5th gear is not in the box with the other gears- its off to the side so you can access it very easily by removing the left front wheel. Just don't let the idler assembly come apart, lots of tiny parts and springs...
The 5th gear can ware out prematurely if you rest your hand on the shifter- do not rest your hand on the shifter in the future.

Go to the dealer and get the recommended plugs. The litttle boxes are actually coil packs; carefully disconnect electrical connector, remove bolt(s), twist coil pack left and right and pull it off the plug. Unscrew plug with proper socket then remove. You may need a piece of vacuum hose to install the new ones. Put hose snugly over the plug and carefully start to thread it in. Also put on a little anti sieze compound on the plug's threading before installation. Ask for any other help.

pop the spark plug wires out of the engine, get a pretty long extension and the right size socket, and untwist them out, replace, (make sure if the new plugs need to be gapped, you do so properly, this will save you on mpg and spark plug life) and put it back together making sure you put the wires back in the same order you took them out! Good luck and please rate me!
