[DML] Re: Jumping Out of 5th Gear

Hi David,
I don't have a problem with 5th gear, but I am starting to have problem with 2nd gear 
popping out now and then.  Although it only seems to happen when the transmission oil is 
cold right after start up and heading down the road. The senario: I would start out for a 
drive No problems then when I pull up the an intersection after down shifting. Call it a 
rolling stop I shift from 3rd to 2nd and think it is all the way in 2nd when I let the clutch 
out to start going again the shifter pops forward. In all the years following fixing the 
Second gear roll pin problem I had never had a problem until the last few months.

As for your 5th gear problem. A couple years back Ed Bernstein wrote a long winded 
Cluthch and Transmission tech article for DW magazine. it covered 3 issues. I remember 
the popping out of 5th gear as sympton of a clutch alignment I think. I don't have my back 
issues handy at the momment  but if someone else happens to have their back issues 
handy  please look it up and post the symptoms and probable cause stuff.
