Is it going in gear, but vehicle just doesn't move, or you can't get it to go into the "reverse" or "5th" gear location? If you can't get it to go into the selected area (reverse or 5th gear spot) then I would guess you you will need to pull the top cover off, and slide the "fork" back onto the shaft. I have seen this happen before. I guess if my response wasn't helpful, I would elaborate a little more about your problem.

I have a 2004 Pontiac Sunfire. I can shift into all gears fine but when I shift into 5th gear it sorta grinds. In shifts into reverse fine its just the 5th gear. I don't whats wrong, or how to fix it....


About all you can do at this point is change the oil in the gear box and have your shift linkage checked and adjusted. The grind is internal, and the transmission will need to be removed to be repaired. Most likely it's worn synchronizers.

I have a 2006 Suzuki grand vitara that has got stuck in 5th gear twice. Since then it grinds when I shift it into 5th and reverse. Other gears are fine. Any ideas?


The syncros are going bad on that shaft. The 5th gear and Reverse are on the same shaft. You will have to bring it to a shop to have the parts replaced as it will only get worse.
