Yes, 4th gear syncro is my bet.

Time to rebuild.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

I can't imagine a syncro making it go out of gear, since they only get paid to help you get into gear. You might try a fluid change to some good stuff. I know years ago mine was acting up, I swapped in synthetic fluid, and over a few weeks it cleaned up nicely, lasted years afterword.

What would cause it to jump out of gear. The shift ring has to get past the syncronizer to engage the gear, the ring may not be toutching the gear and the syncronizer may be kicking it back out. I hope it's something simple as an oil change, it would be the first thing I would try too

Thanks for replying guys.First let me give the paticulars. Tranny has been freshly rebuilt. Not by a professional I have to admit I did it. Followed Moses Ludel 's step by step. New synchros new keys new 5th gear. outside of 4th performs flawless. I must have missed something didn't spit 4th prior to my rebuild. I am stumped. Does anybody have an idea what I missed or messed up? Thanks Fellas.

Just a quick question. Will a faulty ECM cause occasional miss fire.ometimes it purrs then out of the blue will miss bad. Kinda smooths out at about 1500 rpm. Damn thing is like being in love a beautiful woman that just happens to be crazy as hell. You keep thinking i can love her all better.

I used Moses's guide too my 2nd gear is a little stiff I'm hoping it will get better as the weather gets warmer has it done this since you installed the tranny. May remove the shift boot and see if it stays in 4th
