so im buying an 03 civic SI and thats the only problem with it. i know its not a D but maybe someone can help a brotha out.

what are some things that can cause this to happen?

how can it be fixed?

is it too broad of a question to get an accurate answer?

i dont know anything about transmissions so please bear with me and thanks for reading.

Bent shift fork, bad mount, low fluid. There's 3 possibilites. I believe those are cable, so it could be a bad cable or it's not adjusted properly.

he had some guy from hondas warranty claims service check it out and said they wouldnt cover it.

is the synchromesh a bandaid on a broken leg or does it work?

maybe he put some regular gear oil in it? my mechanic says that regular gear oil is to thick to drip the oil on 5th so when you shift into 5th it burns it up or pops out, something like that.

I've had 2 trannys with this same problem, one a D and one a B. One of them was a snap ring that acted as the "detent" for 5th gear to click into place. The ring had lost it's tension and it kept popping out. The other was a worn synchro. What causes it is hard to say.

its a common problem with them... but it seems the more they are beat on the better the chance is it pops out from what ive seen....
