There is a piece in the transmission that hold the gear you selected in place (i forget what it is called) there is one for every gear. The one for 5th is most likely gone. 1 thing most people dont know about is if you rest your hand on the shifter while not changing gears it wears out this part and the synchros, 5th is a common gear to wear like this casue when in this gear you are typically cruiseing on the highway and it's comfortable to rest your hand there.
