This is most likely not a linkage issue. This is an internal transmission issue. Inside the transmission there are some brass pieces that synchronize the gears when you depress the clutch. This is also a tell tell sign that the one between 4th and 5th gear is worn out or completely chewed up. The transmission will need to be repaired or completely rebuilt depending on how much damage has been done to the internal components. sorry about delivering bad news but that's the facts on vehicles that have been driven hard. Hope this information helps you. Good luck.

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

I have a kia rio it jumps out of reverse but hold the gear nob and it works

Hi there,

When a 5-spd gearbox cannot hold reverse, this means either:
* Worn or mal-adjusted Shift Linkage
or
* Weak Shift Rail Spring

If after having the Shift Linkage adjusted the reverse gear still pops out , then you may be facing some more costly work in your gearbox. Depending on the quote to repair your existing box, it may actually be cheaper to fit a 2nd hand one.

Good luck..
