Q: Gears are slipping

asked by on

I have a manual transmission, and the fourth and fifth gears are slipping.

Hi there. A common problem with slipping gears in a manual transmission is that your clutch may be becoming weak. Another problem can be that your 4th and 5th gears may need to be rebuilt. I would recommend having a certified technician inspect your gear-slipping issue in order to determine what repairs are needed.
