    You may have a problem with the shifter rail, only a trained transmission technician would know.

2001 Hyundai Tiburon will not go into 5th or reverse, however it will go into gear 1 to 4


5th and reverse gears are on the same selector rail. It is possible that the selector fork has come loose for the 5th gear or reverse. Remove the gear lever turret section of the box and see if the selector rail is moving gears or the rail itself.

Hyundai 1,6 coupe 1998 r reg no 5th or reverse gears


Sounds like a failed synchronizer in the transmission itself. You are looking at rebuilding the transmission, or finding a good used one to swap in.

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 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.

Wont go into 5th gear


I am going to assume this is a manual transmission, if it is 5th and reverse are on the same selector set, the only solution is to strip the transmission and check out whats broken.

Wont shift into reverse


Regarding the reverse problem. If it's not going into reverse at all and the shifter seems to come up against a dead stop then it's probably the 5th gear synchro. I've recently had the same problem with my 99 prelude. The first time it happened I changed the reverse shift fork because the mechanism was worn. This worked for a while, however, the same thing happend a short while ago. I took my gearbox apart and a friend pointed out that there were some score marks on the synchro. I changed the 5th gear synchro, which is on the same selector rod as reverse gear. This has cured the problem. The synchro cost me £140 from Honda. Hope this is of some help to you.
