I just bought a 91 yj, it's in good condition, but when I switch into fifth gear it falls back into neutral, unless I gas it while shifting, and the second I let up on the gas it falls back into neutral

Anyone have an idea of what the problem is, and how it can be remedied

sounds like a detent ball is missing Or does it actually fall back into nuetral or does it stay in the 5th gear poasition an just reacts like nuetral. if it is the latter the retainer clip for 5 has either come loose or broke unfortunatly the AX-5 are notoriuos for it. on either situation you will have to crack open the tranny

good luck
