On these WC Volkswagens, you have to make sure that the little ball-and-socket gear linkages are connected. If one is off, replace it with new, because the old one will probably pop off again. If there is no problem there and you can select 5th gear, and then only later does it "pop out" of gear, then the spline lock rings have worn where the mating surfaces of each spline tip don't provide a positive "lock" when under power. Some folks think that when a transmission "pops out" when driving, it is the syncronizers. This is never true. (Even Click and Clack get this one wrong continuously.) The syncronizers are responsible for clashing gears during the gear selecting action.
A transmission rebuild is in order if the thing pops out of gear. Good luck.

Cant find my reverce 1997 caviler


Check your owners manual for the correct shift pastern...It is a natural H pattern, with 5th gear upper right...reverse should be all the way to the right and lower right to engage...the knob does not always indicate the correct pattern...may have been changed...also be sure it is a 5 speed...most of these Cavaliers were 4 speeds...with reverse being upper right instead of 5th gear upper right...confirm in your owners manual if possible...will show illustration...Hope this helps.

Pops out of 3rd and 5th gear.


Check the gear stick for obstructions that is not allowing full engagement. Check the gear lever pivot and make sure that it is secure and allowing full selection . Pull the drain plug and check the magnet for metal bits . Any thing there and you will have to pull the box and I would say replace the bearings

When driving in 5th gear should the RPMs run at 3000 RMPS. Mine is a 4 cly 5 speed


You don't provide much information to go on (type of vehicle, type of engine, 2wd or 4wd, etc.) RPM is always going to be based on the speed you're traveling with a standard transmission. My 4 cyl 5 speed Nissan pickup in 5th gear runs at 3000 RPM at about 75mph.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.

guess that the 5th gear is over drive inwhich case your fuel consumption will reduce on highway driving. hope u hv nice high ways!
however, watch out for overspeeding tendency.
