Default 5-Speed Problem--Recommendations?

Have a 91' LS Coupe with 161K on it. Have a problem with the 5-spd that started about two weeks ago. It shifts fine, but pops out of 4th gear in cruise (all others are okay). Did some searches on the forum and the Net and followed a recommendation to change the transmission oil to Pennzoil Synchromesh. Improved it for a few days and then back to the same problem.

Anyone got a recommendation for a magic fix or for a good Acura transmission mechanic in the Phoenix area?

Ouch. That sucks, before condeming it, I would check all the shifter linkages and bushings. Otherwise your gonna have to rebuild or swap in a new trans, which can be cheaper. Sometimes you can find the 5spds for really cheap. Under $200.

Welcome to the forum btw!

Also. I really like the Honda syncromesh fluid but also Gm makes a great fluid, a lot of ppl.have had good luck with.

Thanks for the recco. Had the car shipped to Phoenix from Northern Virginia recently and they may have banged up the underside. Had a leak from a rubber boot at the back of the transmission that it did not have before shipment. May have bent one of the shift rods as well.
