Sarah Fleming Detroit, Michigan - 1988 Honda Accord
Clutch....was replaced by 'backyard mechanics', now car pops out of 5th gear, and grinds when she tries to get back in. Will stay in 5th longer when engine is cold. Did they screw up the clutch job ?No--her 5th gear synchro is gone, which means she needs a new/rebuilt tranny--not the clutch guys' fault. Go back and try to make amends, or use bungee cord to keep it in 5th.
