the synchronize in the transmission is bad, that why the jumping out of fifth gear
they dont slip even if they have broken teeth

automatic: the band or bands controlling the activation of gear are worn OR the friction plates are worn manual: the gear teeth are worn or out of allignment
No. Heat it with a plumber's torch and it will slip right on.
