new guy here, 1st post

1st and 3rd pop out of gear on my 89 xt 4x4 truck. what's the best (read cheapest) way to fix this. my uncle has a bungee cord that he uses to keep 5th from popping out, but I don't need to do that.

can you pull and dissassemble the tranny without special "tranny" tools?

the truck works like it is, but it it a real pain to have to hold 1st in every time I take off.

Welcome to the forum!

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).

Please get back to us and let us know what fixed your problem....that way we can all get smarter!

Good Luck!
