    A new clutch is in place, transmission fluid has been drained, worked on, 5th gear is loose when shifting, when parked, or driving all other gears are tight, do I need the gear box replaced, feels like something is broken when shifting to 5th gear.

    Hello Warren. Someone here on Xweb may have a suggestion, but asking your question on a Toyota forum would be a good idea too.

    I'll admit when I first read the title I saw "5th gear out OF a 97 Toyota Tercel". I imagined that someone figured out the Tercel's 5th gear could be made to fit in the X's gearbox. After all I saw previously where someone machined the 2nd gear slider from a Yugo to fit the X box.

    Likely just wear in the shifter/shifter interface to the box.
