RE: [DML] Re: Jumping Out of 5th Gear



Dennis, 

It sure sounds like the typical broken second gear fork pin symptoms. This
is most commonly caused by someone trying to make it home without a tow call
after losing their clutch fluid. IMHO it's not with the risk of damage to
the car or the person driving it to force a car into gear with a
malfunctioning clutch. Don't blame yourself as this could have happened
years ago to a P.O. and the weakened pin finally decided to let go. In any
case the fix is to R & R the transmission and replace the pin or ignore it
until it gets worse.  Unfortunately it may eventually cause damage to the
first/second slide hub which is much worse because it's very hard to find
slide hubs these days. BTW when we replace this pin we install a smaller one
inside the replacement pin to give it extra strength. You should also plan
on changing all the seals and gaskets.

David,

The "pops out of fifth" problem is not very common but I've seen twenty or
so cases over the years and the cause is usually a bent shift fork which we
usually replace. Can I assume that you are straightening this fork to effect
a repair as this part is also somewhat hard to get?

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.

Dennis
