When I'm shifting from 5th to 6th gear, on occasion, 6th gear won't catch and it'll sound like I'm in neutral and hitting the rev limiter. Then after the revs come down, it'll kick in to 6th.

It happens about once every week. It happens usually when I need to pick up some speed, so I'm cranking on the throttle pretty hard.

I read about the detent spring fix, but those posts seemed to limit the problem to 99-02 models, and 2nd gear pop-out.

It'll also sometimes happen in lower gears the same way, but usually 5th to 6th.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. When this happens, it makes me feel like a sitting duck on the freeway.
