    Does it pop out of gear when you are stepping on the gas or letting up not just cruiseing along?

Manual tranny shifter pops out of 5th and 4th gears when driving

Hello. Popping out of gear is a common problem when it comes to manualtransmissions. The most common reason a manual transmission would jump out of gear is due to low or contaminated fluid, worn synchronizers inside thetransmission, or improperly adjusted shift linkage.

Try the fluid first but most likely you synchronizers need to be replaced and this is a pretty good job you can't do it yourself and it could cost about 25 to $3,500 on the average 5th gear pop out

Change shift linkage on 93 sentra

More than likely it's not the linkage. Sounds like the fourth to fifth synchronizer is very badly worn, which will cause the shifter to "pop out" of fifth gear.

Pops out of 5th gear

You're 5th gear syncro has just gone out. It keeps your shift forks and slider gear from popping off. It also makes it possible to shift the gear in. It's going to take a rebuild of the transmission to fix this problem.

5th gear with 1996 VW Polo

hi mandy
im dave
if it only revs when you put it in 5th gear then it is not in fifth gear. it may look like it but it is not. try moving the gear selector from fourth into neutral releasing the clutch fully then applying the clutch and initiating fifth gear. if that does not work try placing it into one of the other gears first without releasing the clutch and then selecting fifth.
you should be fine driving in four gears as long as you dont travel on the audobahn or at speeds like your on the audobahn. Just watch your redline. try not to go past it. i think it is actually better for your car to drive at higher revolutions than lower as it cleans out your combustion chamber of carbon. on the other hand it is ******* your engine to drive in the red line constantly.
but 3000 rpm in 4th gear probably has you driving 130km/hr (82mph) which should be sufficient and your redline probably does not start until somewhere between 4-5k
