[DML] Re: Jumping Out of 5th Gear

For the jumping out of 2nd gear I would suspect a bent or broken roll
pin on the shifter rod again. Before going inside recheck the gear
shift adjustments and the oil level. The jumping out of 5th gear has
nothing to do with the clutch alignment. It is caused by bending the
5th gear shifter fork because you do not get full clutch disengagement
which is caused by the plastic clutch line. Same cause as the
bent/broken pin on the 2nd gear shift rod. BTW some people report that
the transmission shifts better especially when cold by using synthetic
oil in the manual transmission. Maybe you want to try that?
