on my way home from work, i was coming up to a stop light like usually downshifting into 3rd around 25-30mph then second gear around 15-20mph
slowing down to a complete stop. light turned green and gradually took off shifting into second around 12mph cruised on up to about 30 and went for third gear and i got nothing. felt like it went in like usual but nothing there went back to second gear and tried agian and same thing...i pulled over and sat there to try and engage 3rd gear. slowly let off the clutch, so i tried 4th gear and same about 20 minutes from home, mostly freeway. so i have to shift from 2nd to 5th to get home. note:1st, 2nd, 5th, reverse all work fine. what happend to 3rd nd 4th

not to be a [email protected]# but do you guys know how to drive a manual. I have had two 08 scion xb and both manual transmission. First one was purchased brand new and was driven daily on street and highway and raced a couple times in 1/8 and 1/4 mile tracks and never had a issue. My current xb has 92k miles and i drive it hard and down shift all the time and have had no issues either. i do currently have MT-90 oil and it did make a difference when gears go in but nothing has happened like the original post. I also have aluminium bushing to eliminate slop but would like to install a TRD short throw for a better feel.
