You have a linkage problem its either where the shifter is in the floor there is a ball there that wears out and causes this. or its loose at the transmission just pop the hood and visually inspect the transmission and the shifter linkages see if any are not connected. if its connected and tight on the trans then you know you need a new shifter in the car. they are not hard to replace.

My holden viva 2008 manual cannot put into reverse


as the 5th gear and reverse gear are on the same shifter rail the there may be a problem with the selector fork for reverse gear. Undo the bolts that hold the shifter turret to the box and see if the reverse selector moves when you use a lever to move the rail

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 ?

I installed a new clutch and cant get 5th or reverse.


remove gear stick and check its in properly, if you removed the gear shifter quadrant box bolted to top of gearbox you more than likely put it in while a gear was selected, remove and make sure gear box selectors are all lined up in nuetral then refit quadrant box and then gear lever.

Problems with gear box


The first thing to check is that your shifter linkage is adjusted correctly and that there are no worn out (sloppy feeling) shifter bushings. If the shifter is OK, then the synchronizers in the trans are worn. You can get the details for the correct way to adjust the linkage from the Bentley manual... Hope this helps...;-)

Rav4 gear problem


You need a new 5th gear- luckily this is easy to replace- I did it myself following online directions for 5th gear replacement. The 5th gear is not in the box with the other gears- its off to the side so you can access it very easily by removing the left front wheel. Just don't let the idler assembly come apart, lots of tiny parts and springs...
The 5th gear can ware out prematurely if you rest your hand on the shifter- do not rest your hand on the shifter in the future.
