hey guys i have a 03 ba xr6 5speed man, just recently it started to stick in 3rd gear i would really have to give it a good pull to get it out and into 4th, then a few days later i had it in 4th and it just came out of gear, so i gave it abit of time and used it a couple days later and did the same thing just came out, but now it doesn't stick in 3rd it just pops out of 4th while driving , i havn't driven it in 4th since just go from 3rd to 5th. does anyone have any idea on what it could be or have had the same problem? thanks guys .

Sounds like the syncromesh has gone, i would take it to a transmission specialist and get their opinion

i've got a 02 xr6 5 speed man, same sort of thing, sometimes 3rd gear sticks, if i push it forward back towards 3rd it comes out fine, same thing with 4th, if i push it down towards 4th to then up to get it out the problem doesnt occur, it hasnt done it for a while tho only when i first bought the car
