View Full Version : 88 Celica GT won't go back into 5th gear

Yesterday my GT popped out of 5th gear about 5 times until it finally wouldn't go back in. Gears 1 through 4 work fine. Anyone else ever had this problem, and if so, how I go about fixing it? 88 Celica 3SFE.

Get a new tranny. Your synchros are shot.

Thats pretty much it. On the brightside, the tranny should be cheap and it's not difficult to replace.

Psh, I've been running with no third gear syncros for three years. It's fine. :hehe:

Yeah bud, sorry, once those 5th gear syncros are shot it becomes cheaper to just slap on a different transaxle.
