alot of times people jump to conclusions. Ive learned this from my grandpa. He once bought a 96' cadillac that the owner was sure needed a head gasket,... it turned out that my grandpa bought it and a day later found it to be a $20 belt. Ran like new.

Hope all is well with your tranny now.

Exclamation

Just my two bits on the shifting problem (FWIW):

A while ago, my truck got difficult to shift. I had trouble getting it into 1st, 3rd, and 5th gears, and it would pop out of these gears easily. It seemed to be slowly getting worse and worse.

It turned out the bushing (seat) that sits under the shift lever was starting to disintegrate. I had to pull the shift lever to replace the bushing (about a $20 part, IIRC).

If I'm reading this post properly, it sounds to me that it could possibly be a worn shifter retainer or bushings, or both. Not a difficult or expensive fix at all.

Other simple solution: Check the Clutch fluid reservoir. Low fluid = Hard shifting.

i dont see why on every tranny problem post everybodys says it the shifter seat and bushing. yes. it is a (cheap) fix. not always the problem solver. i see it as more maintenance then anything. is it because its super easy and anybody can do it? all these problems ppl are referring to isnt fixed by this. i replaced mine about a month ago because i was hard shifting. didnt do a damn thing. mine were disinegrated. i actually drove my truck for 2 days after i cleaned everything up waiting for the new ones to come in the mail. not a bit of diff. afterwards doing alot of knowledge reading and finding its prob my synchros. wouldnt doubt bearings and forks and everything else is prob worn out as well. these trucks have so many miles on them. when something goes sour. the smart thing to do is replace everything that worn once the tranny is torn down....right??
im sorry..but all i see is SHIFTER SEAT/BUSHING/////SHIFTER SEAT...BUSHING

Shifter seat/bushing is the MOST common & the EASIEST fix, so why not try it first??

Take a chill pill.....

If it turns out this doesn't solve the problem and the transmission needs to be replaced you can always put the shifter seat/bushing in your new unit.

would this also be the case if it is slipping out of 3rd 4th an 5th? as long as i am giving it gas it will stay in gear but soon as i let off the gas it pops right out of gear. Also it will grind sometimes into 4th....i dont know much bout this but i have had the truck for alomost 3 yrs and never had a problem...an how do u check the gear oil?

My `89 did the exact same thing 2 years ago. It had been shifting weird for about a week; it didn't feel like it was going completely into 3rd most of the time. Finally, I was 50 miles from home, climbing a hill and it popped completely out of third gear.

I had a shop looking for a rebuilt trans for me, until I read about the bushing problem. I picked up the parts from my dealer (they were very aware of this issue, btw) and installed them in about an hour or so. Shifts just like new....
