Why when you switch from fourth to fifth gear is grinds?
The grinding noise can be an indication of a bad gear in the transmission. The grinding noise can also indicate a problem with the clutch.
How do you get a 245dl Volvo 1976 into fifth gear There is no fifth it has a switch that I don't know how to work on the knob?
It is controlled by the sliding switch on top of the gear knob. Switch in the forward position is off and in the back position on. It will only engage if the car is in 4th gear. The 1975 and 1976 models were known for having a weak overdrive unit (5th gear) so your actual problem may be the unit itself is bad
To switch back to automatic after being in the simulated manual mode, you need to shift past fifth gear. When you reach fifth gear, you can tap the shifter to the right twice and it will go back into automatic. Or, you can shift the car to neutral and then back to drive. I would suggest being stopped for this though.
Fifth gear is like overdrive, it is meant for flat open highway driving. It is a gas saving gear so that you can travel at highway speeds at low rpm and your engine is just too small to use that gear at any other time. So use it on flat or slightly down sloped roads, fourth should be your normal gear for from about 45 to 65.
My 1995 Metro jumps out of fifth gear when the gear is worn out. I had the transmission rebuilt, and fifth gear replaced, at 150k miles and fifth gear replaced again at 220k miles. The transmission shop that did the second repair told me that fifth gear is located outside the main part of the housing and is not lubricated by direct contact with the transmission oil. Instead the oil is pumped by the action…
You have to have a trailer attached to do this. Lower the landing gear to the ground to take pressure off the fifth wheel. DO NOT RELEASE THE TRAILER KING PIN. Go into the cab. To the right of the instrument panel, you'll see the switch for the fifth wheel slide. Unlock the fifth wheel. Pull backwards or forwards (whichever direction you're moving the fifth wheel). When you get it to where you want it…
The 5th gear on your VW Golf MKIII 1995 keeps popping out - why I have been told that the 5th has not been used by the previous owner - can that affect the gearbox?
I don't think there is room to put an overdrive in a Zuke, I've seen most of the aftermarket overdrive units and all the OD's I've seen would be way to big. There are transmissions with different fifth gear ratios, one trans has a higher fifth gear than the other. Guys with the 33" and bigger tires usually run the lower ratio fifth gear. You can ether swap the trans or swap the fifth gear…

You may have shifted into reverse by accident, I've done it a few times Answer You may also be having problems with the synchro rings that allow the gears to mesh without the grinding. 1st-2nd gear share a synchro and 3rd-4th gear share a synchro too. It sounds like the 3rd-4th gear synchro may be worn.
