My car recently developed a problem where it would jump out of 3rd gear. It only does it in 3rd, and only on deceleration, but not always.


I have renewed the engine stabilser rubbers and have checked the linkage (remote change). Everything looks to be in good order.


Any ideas?

If you're happy it's not an external issue with linkage/engine mounts then could be a number of things inside the 'box, synchro unit/springs, dog teeth or selector fork. In any event the 'box will need to come out, and chances are you will find a number of other components that are worn and will require replacement I'm afraid.

Just check that there's nothing silly like carpet or a bent shift rod preventing it going right in to gear, if that's OK then as Swiftgeneral has suggested, though, the other thing it can be from is a worn Mainshaft Bearing too.
