Hey everyone,

So I notice that when I put the car in reverse (5MT), it likes to pop out of gear. It only does this with reverse. Anyone know what could be causing this to happen?

Thanks!

I am not sure on the cause, but similar behavior has been reported with the 5MT and other posters. My guess is either your transmission mount and/or the shifter bushings are worn. The extra movement in the system lets it pop out.

Just a guess. Since both of my cars are ATs.

no problem like that with my 5mt

might be a good time for trans mounts, shifter bushings - and that short throw shifter kit you've been wanting !
