Posted by on

  • lous1 Sep 01, 2008

    Is that for manual or automatic transmission? I have a manual that will not shift into 5th gear but the others are fine, I am not aware of an over drive solenoid on a manual transmission.

Samurai 5th/reverse rail fork stuck


Hi Amanda

This sounds very much to me like a linkage problem. I think your best bet would be to take it to your mechanic for him/her to have a look at it and fix it properly.

Hope this helps.

5th gear shifter linkage reverse


can i assume you pulled the side plug on tranny and the level
is right there? or gone way down, ever do a 50k service? to it?

M/T tranny (not auto) what engine? the m./t varies by HP of ENGINE.
If its really in 5th ( i bet not)
if the RPM rises fast that is called clutch slip
yes, clutch bad.
if not in 5th actual rpm will rise fast too. slip,
if the other gears wroke like 4th at wide open throttle up hill
gee the chutch is good.
so its not going in to 5th (for lots of reasons)
but 1 reason , is easy.

-AX 4/5/15 transmission
this tranny has a shift tower. (that thing on top that the shifter lever
fits in to)
most tranny that fail to actual shift into gear
is caused by a $1 plastic part failure
so pull the shifter off top of the shift tower.
and look, is the plastic buffer parts all bad, missing, cracked or
destoryed, sure they all end there... all.
i can also remove the shifter, lever.
and shift to 5ht by hand, and see that it DOES.
it either does, or does not.
if it does, the lever parts are bad.
that simple.
see part 61 (im guessing which of 5 tranny it is , )

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.

My 1991 Saab 900 is shifting perfectly except it will not go into


I've had a similar problem, and it was the rubber bushings in the shifter link; as some particular ones age they get sloppy and 5th gear seems to be the one that suffers. Others will age and disintegrate, then you won't be able to shift at all. If all the other gears are fine (no grinding, judder, popping out of gear or other untoward behaviour) I'd look to these rubber bushings, and replace them all while you're at it. They're replaceable at much less cost than a tranny rebuild, and are most likely that cause, i.e. after rebuilding tranny, you still won't get into 5th because the shifter won't have been rebuilt, just the contents of the gear box!

Check the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon, for info, it's an invaluable resource!

8 valve manual: http://www.amazon.com/Eight-Official-Service-Manual-1981-1988/dp/0837603102

Get the appropriate manual for your car and enjoy the Saab!
