Question 5th gear problem

I dont know if this is normal or should i get it checked out, I have a 5 speed manual, When i am going hard on 4th gear and shift to 5th it will grind a little bit, it seems when the rpm's are around 3 or above this will happen, but if i push in the clutch and wait 1 sec it goes in smooth. Help!

you should never shift hard into 5th gear make sure you push from 4th to 5th very slow and let it slide in and it should do fine... if you have been slaming it into 5th or racing and shifting hard into 5th it may already be gone... you should never rag on 5th gear racing or otherwise its far to week.

Synchro needs fixing. It's job is to mate gear speeds so you don't grind going into gear. Your pause between 4th and 5th tells all, it's allowing the synchro more time to do it's job.

Cheap way is to pull the trans and sandpaper the syncro a bit to allow it to grab better, smart fis is to put a new synchro ring in.

Cause nothing sucks worse than pulling the trans, tearing it apart to do a cheap fix only to fond out the cheap fix didn;t work or didn't last long.
