Since the trans is "popping" out of reverse, have the plastic piece checked to see if its binding the linkage (under the leather boot). A broken motor mount can cause this too, but not as likely. The most likely is the transmission is due an overhaul focusing on the reverse synchronizer assy. "Alexander Popov" <> wrote in message > Have the shift linkage checked.
