    some advice or recommendation to fix this weird phenomenon ?

    i can engage 1-4th gear with no problem
    but when it comes to the 5th gear , after engaging the gear for a few seconds,
    the gear will pop out by itself and goes to neutral
    if i hold it down with my hand on the 5th gear, it can go on w/o problem

    everytime i let go the gear knob on 5th gear , it goes back to neutral
    what could have caused this problem?

    i've done some reading and research

    possible reasons i've read are

    1.) gear box fluid is low
    2.) Shift cable is corroded at the transmission
    (replace cable bushing if corroded or replace the
    transmission case housing, 1-2 shift fork, 2nd gear set,
    1st gear, and 5th gear.)

    does that mean my whole gear box has to be replaced?

    3.) syncros worn out?
