Question about 1993 Nissan Sentra 4 Door
I have a 1993 Nissan Sentra 1.6L with a manual transmission. The transmission pops out of fifth gear I hit the gas. I can coast fine but when I accelerate with out manually holding the gear selector in gear, it slips out. Also, under high rpms, the gear selector lever jerks back and forth. Can anyone assist?

You'll probably have to change the clutch plate on the flywheel. You'll have to get a floor jack, but a transmission jack is easier to remove the transmission. To remove the transmission you'll have to remove the tortion bars on both front wheels. Also, you'll have to remove the crossmember aft of the transfer case. You'll also have to remove the front and rear drive shafts. The manual says you should keep the transfer case from leaking oil out the back. but, you can just top it off after you're done. Be careful not to damage the seal seal for the rear drive shaft. Anyway, once you get the transmission and transfer case out (you'll have to remove the shift and transfer case levers), you should have enough space to remove the clutch plate from the flywheel on the engine. You should have an alignment tool to make sure the clutch plate is aligned with the crankshaft so you can put the transmission back on.

This is common for that transmission, it will eventually lead to 5th gear POPOUT, where it will actually pop itself out of 5th gear... I would get a second opinion to be sure, but looks like a rebuild is near maybe.. :(

Either the fluid is low or you have a clogged trany filter or are starting to loose your transmition.If it is just low on fliud you will ruin your trany if you keep driving it with this condition.Check your fluid level with the engine running and if it is low fill it to the full line and test drive.

If you contaminated the throttle cable with lubricant, you HAVE to REPLACE IT. They are dry on purpose - so they do not collect and cake up with crud. This WILL cause it to bind, usually at partial or full throttle and then where will you be? ;) Get that fixed and then consider this:
If it is a carburetor engine (non fuel injection) likely cleaning the throttle linkages, springs and plates with carb and choke cleaner from a spray can will get the parts clean and loosened up. Some of those designs incorporated a weighted cam/ratchet to set idle speed when the engine is cold. As the engine warms, this cam/ratchet uses gravity and bimetal spring to fall back and allow the throttle plates to rest at normal, low, warm idle speeds. Crud, light rust, dry parts will prevent this from operating properly. I once serviced a Dodge B250 van for this very problem because *mud dobber wasps* decided to build a nest in the throttle linkages!
