My third gear jumps out of place when i let the revs drop below 2500rpm.

any ideas of what this could be or anyone had the same problem?

Sometimes my car magically decides it doesn't want to go into 1st and pops out. It's my tranny mounts going bad. Crawl underneath and have a look.

I have the same problem in second gear, but I just had a full diagnostics test done on my car a month and a half ago. And all that was wrong was my "Guibo" joint was going bad(What is a "guibo joint"?? ). So the dealership replaced that, but know after reading your too post you think I could have the same prob. with my transmission mounts going bad? and if so what should I look for?

Sorry Bryon, I didn't mean to Hijack your thread lol

Guibo joint is kind of like a disk in your drive train that keeps shifting smooth...if that wears, it can create added vibration and bumpiness...its kind of like a shock absorber for the drivetrain and tranny. Was your problem fixed when the Guibo was replaced?

lol I had a feeling the guibo joint was in my drivtrain.
Actually, I never drove the car that much before getting the diagnostics test done( If I remember correctly it was done the first week I had the car) When ever I to shift into 2nd I have to put more pressure to shift than I do any of the other gears. I can feel it grap the gear halfway. For example when I shifting, I feel it grap the gear(thinking it's fully in 2nd) so I let off the clutch and BAM it slips out of gear and makes a loud grinding noise! I know my syncronizers aren't going bad. right? My car has 61K miles and the DIAG. test was done at 60K miles.

lol thanks, I'm a big fan of the WRC!!! And Sebastian Loeb is my fav. driver

if the shift pops out its could also be an issue with the linkage.

It could be the guibo too i guess. Mine is going bad too. I thought the guibo just dampened vibrations and didn't have anything to do wtih location of the transmission. I suppose if it were bad enough off it could shift a little bit.

could be a faulty guide sleeve, it would pop out of lower gears (1st and 2nd) when revving high if this was the problem
