Does your RPM's dip from about 1,000 to just a tad below 500?

If so...try cleaning out your throttle.

Be sure not to spray throttle cleaner directly into the throttle, but on a rag and wipe away. Use something to hold the throttle plate open and use a small brass brush, dip into the throttle cleaning solution, and start to scrub away some of the built up soot.

Afterwards, wipe it down till you see a rather shiny throttle.

Verify the fluid level is full (not overfilled!) and the color and smell of the fluid. It should be light red color (usually) and not smell burnt @ all.

I have Civic 2001 with 160,000 miles on it. i have problem when i am driving on high way on 80/mph rpm stay on 2800 and after 5 minuts rpm goes to 3500 and i feel loud noise like engine is taking more...

If the car type is manual transmission:
- Perform the clutch and pressure plate test.
- Pull up the hand brake, shift the lever to 1st gear, rev up to 2000 rpm, release the clutch pedal at once.
- If the engine does not stall, replace the clutch, pressure plate, clutch bearing, regrind the fly wheel and pressure plate precisely.
- If the engine stalls, the clutch system is OK and do not need any clutch system repairing.
- If the clutch system is OK, check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).

If the car type is automatic transmission:
- Check the transmission control cable adjustment.
- Check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).
- Check the Automatic Transmission Fluid level in the transmission with the car on level floor, engine start, gear lever in P.
If the problem persists, contact a competent technician or service personnel.

2004 Honda Element with manual transmission is jumping out of gear. Any ideas? Sounds and feels like an adjustment issue to me. I had a new clutch put in about 50,000 miles ago. Vehicle has about...

I hate to say it but given the mileage on the car the transaxle may be going out. Usually the symptom is caused by problems with the syncro gears but only one or two. For example, if it only jumps out of 5th gear it would be the 5th gear syncro.
You could check the adjustment of the cable from the shifter to eliminate that possibility.

Hard to select revers gear in a manual gearbox 1993 pajero

Your pressure plate may be loose on your transmission. That can often cause gears to slip or not quite fit. You my want to also consider checking all your bolts on the clutch as well. sometimes things just aren't snug or need a slight adjustment. Outside that, you may be looking at a rebuild or new trans/clutch combo.
