    Ok i just bought a 89 si tranny off of a fellow member. I've been driving the car for about a day and everything was great. I get on the highway to go to work and it wouldn't go in to fifth gear. This wouldn't bother me so much except the highway is the quickest way to get to work. I dont know much about tranny's but if someone could give me some insight, or let me know if theres a way to check it without taking it out of the car I would appreciate it. Thanks.:confused:

    There is a chance it has a broken shift fork inside the transmission. The only way to fix any internal transmission problem is to remove it and take it apart.
