Transmission Jump Out of 2nd Gear

While driving your car, the transmission jumps out of second gear.

Troubleshooting car problems of transmission that jump out of 2nd gear
When the transmission jumps out of second gear it indicates a possible problem of loose shifter fork or out of adjustments shift linkage. Because of the complexity of manual transmission it is very difficult to explain to non-mechanic why either a problem with the shift linkage or something called a shifter fork can cause the transmission to jump out of second gear.

The shift linkage and the shifter fork have something to do why the transmission stayed in gear. Therefore, if the shift linkage is out of adjustment or the shifter fork is loose the transmission will jump out of gear. The cause of the transmission trouble that we mentioned here is only a possibility but probably the most possible cause of the transmission problem. There are other causes of this problem but it can only be determined by inspecting the actual transmission, without inspecting the actual transmission the two causes we mentioned are likely the culprit.
