Assuming this is a manual shift transmission then 5th has probaly melted due to no lube.5 th gear is smaller on the countershaft and does not dip into the sump as far.So it is the first to loose oil when trans is low.If this is a 5 speed auto like on the 04 up accords and odessy vans then clutches are most likely damaged.Either way you are gonna need transmission repair.Good luck!

My 96 Saturn Sl1 slips from 5th gear to 3rd. Does this mean transmission is out? After adding transaxcle fluid my car doesnt want to move.


Did you check the fluid level while the car was running? You really don't want to over fill the trans with ATF.

1st 3rd and 5th gears are spongy to shift into


Start with the firs post and have those cables and linkage assembly looked at if those are good then what you have is a loose bolt on the transmission that bolt is responsible to keep the gear in place when loose the transmission will do what you described as well nothing more nothing less.

Crunching when changing gears on a pajero


check the oil level of the gearbox, if level is low or oil is too thin will cause it to crunch. put an 80w90 gear oil into it if needs fill or change/ also check the clutch is fully disengaged. maybe clutch hydraulics have air in the system, this will reduce the travel of the clutch fork and not fully disengage the clutch. to see if its the clutch hydraulics select 1st gear push in the clutch and start the engine, if it starts to creep forward check out the hydraulics. if all this ok, prob be the synchro rings internal in the gearbox

I have a 1987 mq nissan patrol turbo charge 4x4.my problem is there is a "rattly" noise when under load in 1st,2nd,3rd and 5th gear. When in 4th gear it is as quiet as a mouse. Can you advise what may be...


metal in the box oil indicates bearing failure in the transmission
in effect there is no 4th gear as it is a direct coupling of the in and out put shafts so there is no side load on the counter shaft and no load on those bearings so that will explain the noise in all of the gears except 4th which is straight through
time to pull the box before a bearing comes apart and damages teeth on the gears

I have a 91 Isuzu pick up manual transmission 5 speed that makes a high whining noise in 1st 2nd and 5th gear. What could this be?


Have you checked the level of gear oil in the transmission? Remove the fill plug and see if oil is up to the hole.

Mine has a high pitched whistle at high rpms and I can't figure it out. But mines def not the tranny. I'm thinking it's a vacuum line somewhere. It's a 97 2.3l manual. The colder it is the louder...

My ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.


Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

I own 1994 Acura Integra with a 5 speed manual transmission that recently started to develop a gear whine between shifting 1st to 2nd gears and 3rd gears--less so between 4th and 5th gears. What do you...


If the whine is there than the main bearing is already worn adding fluid will not save it, you will have to swap it or rebuild it. sorry i know you were hoping for something better.

1988 Bronco II transmission pop out of 1st gear


there are dent and brass balls that are in your transmission and are used to hold the shifter into each gear when it starts poping out of that means that those dents and brass balls are worn down and i would suggest getting the transmission rebuilt.
