1995 Ford Probe 5 speed manual transmission. 5th gear pops

Customer Question

1995 Ford Probe 5 speed manual transmission. 5th gear pops out when running. Then later could not shift into 5th gear. So for a while I just used the car without shifting beyond 4th gear. Then one day while in reverse, I could shift out of reverse. So I backed into a parking spot and finally got it to neutral, but no further shifting is possible

Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose

You are going to find most likely the damage inside the transaxle at the shift rail used by 5th and reverse that moves the shift forks. Do you need diagrams to remove, install and overhaul the trans?
