Manual Transmission 5 speed


check the drain plug magnet for metal bits. Mostly you can remove the rear extension housing with out removing the gear box and you will find a small gear on the cluster shaft ( bottom shaft) and a larger gear on the out put shaft ( tail shaft) . Check that the shifter fork is actually moving the larger gear or gear dog into 5th gear (Fork loose on selector rail) or check that there are still teeth on the smaller gear as excessive high speed under load will rear out the teeth

Lost 5th gear manual trans 96 ford probe


Unfortunately it sounds like a transmission rebuild. Manual transmission use syncronizers to allow the gears to mesh correctly when sifting. When it "pops" out of gear, it may have been a bent shift fork or a chipped gear, but now it sounds like it's sheared. You can remove the drain plug and see if the oil is contaminated with metal shavings to confirm.

Legum manual stuck in fifth gear


most likely you have a defective5th gear syncrhronising mechanism.Most transmissions have a 5th gear inspection cover which should give you access to the 5th gear gearwheel which should normally allow you to disengage it but eventually it will lock up in 5th again. In other words i would advise a transmission overhaul

5 speed manual transmission wont stay in 5th gear ,


can be lots of things,,, 4wd or 2wd, must i guess that?

let me guess, easy, and cheap first. ok? no need to go hog wild on guessing, at your expense ,no?>



  1. all vitara/tracker/sidekicks, all have the 2 plastic fittings in the shift box, go, well, to dust, or crack, and then the shift lever bounces and goes out of gear or in fact was never fully in 5th gear, detents.


  2. loose bottom rear transmission mount, (beat to death)


  3. shift rails failing, (detent failure (springs and balls)


  4. burned up fork on 5th gear, due to running trans dry. or near or GL4 fluild looks like, tar and metal filings ; ever consider do ing the service on that, drain and fill, running it on 24year old gear lube?


  5. the 2 front rubber plugs love to fall out (glued in) and then GL4 slowly is lost and gears/bearings and forks are wrecked.


  6. bad 5th gear bearing, rear.


  7. bad 5th gear front bearing. if flops about, and jumps out of gear.


  8. 5th gear synchro ring, broken, causing ill fitting 5th gear DOGS








bearing 30 and 31 are the 2 bearings mention above.

the last guy with 5th failing gear 35 , spins were wrecked.

running trans near dry,. expensive fix. with new cluster 26



see plastic 27 below.

that page even shows how to run and shift trans with extension housing off, to prove the box is good or bad, such a deal , no ?

92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear


Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

Wont go into 5th gear


I am going to assume this is a manual transmission, if it is 5th and reverse are on the same selector set, the only solution is to strip the transmission and check out whats broken.
