It can't be the clutch, must be a problem with 5th gear in the transmission...

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.

Hello i have a 1994 honda accord sir cd6 h22a engine my problem is every time i change into 5th gear it grinds

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Pretty much a worn out clutch lining. If the clutch lining is worn out, it tends not to stop the flywheel and will surely cause a grinding sound.

I strongly suggest that you replace the clutch lining, pressure plate and release bearing to resolve the problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

No 5th or reverse on Sierra 2500

hi, this could point to one of a couple of things now the first and most obvious would be that the clutch needs replacing due to it being to low as this would indeed give you the problem your having.
Now the second problem could be that the nylon bushes on the gear selector could be worn and may need replacing, but if you can get all the other gears no problem then this is less likely so depending on how long ago the clutch was done i would think it could have gone and need replacing.

now if its a cable clutch their maybe some adjustment you could do at the gear box end you would need to see where the clutch cable goes into the gear box and see if their is the option of screwing a nut at the end of the cable that will allow you to take up some play on the clutch if their isnt any adjuster or you have fluid clutch then the chances are it will need replacing.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

96 manual honda accord- problems shifting into reverse

Is the tranny just hard to put into reverse? Check with mechanic and see if you need clutch adjusted. Also try pushing down on the shifter to bypass the safety. Most have to be pushed down from the top of the shifter in order to go in to reverse.

Drivetrain problems

you know some mustangs have an adjustment system on the clutch pedal, and might need adjustment, or if you install a rebuilt clutch instead of a new one some times they come unbalance and vibrate if you did just never again trust a rebuilt clutch kit
