Customer Question

I have a 1989 truck. It was popping out of gear. But now it will only shift into 2nd and 5th while driving. It still shifts when it is not moving. I can go from first to 2nd when it is stopped.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In most cases if it is popping out of gear and will not shift properly with the engine running that usually means you likely have worn synchronizers and or worn shift forks and with the amount of miles you have on the transmission both are very likely and you are looking at either a replacement and or overhaul.
