Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What could be the problem if a 1987 Manual, keeps popping out of gear?

It's the synchronizers for whichever gears are popping out.


Unfortunately, that means you have worn parts inside the transmission. Probably needs a rebuild to fix the problem.


Worn out transmission bearings.
