Type your question here...The manual transmission in my 1993 Mazda Miata sometimes slips into neutral when I'm in, for example, 3rd or 4th gear and press down hard on the accelerator.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** certified automotive professional with over 25 years experience. I will be glad to assist you with this.
Unfortunately that symptom is related to the wear on the transmission. That indicates worn gear synchronizer hubs, this can cause the transmission to pop out of gear. Replacing all the gear synchronizer hubs and anything else that looks worn or damaged will be the fix for this which will mean removing the transmisssion from the vehicle and tearing it down. It will also be good to replace the clutch and the input bearing while the transmission is out of the vehicle.

Please let me know if you need any other assistance.
