February 22, 2005I just bought a little Isuzu Rodeo beater. It is a '94 v6 with a 5 speed manual transmition. The biggest problem i am having is that it keeps slipping out of third gear. If you are under power it is fine but the moment you let off the gas to coast it pops out unless you hold it. A friend of mine told me it might be a shifting fork. Any ideas of the root of the problem and a fix would be great.

February 22, 2005shift fork is worn or whatever the little part is that holds it in gear. (pretty sure it is the fork)
February 23, 2005Hate to disagree with ya General, but more than likely it's a bad bearing in the trans or a worn thru shaft. Due to the nature of the gear tooth angles, when power is being applied, it tends to draw the gears into a 'tighter' mesh. If the main shaft bearings, or the shaft itself, or the secondary shaft or bearings are worn alot they don't stay in line. So when you decelerate the opposite force applies, forcing the gears apart, thus causing it to 'jump' out of gear .......
February 23, 2005don't hate it man, cause i didn't know!! LOL!
i have heard of a worn shift fork before, that's why i said that.
hope you get it fixed!
