FIFTH GEAR STALLS AND MAKES A LOT OF NOISE WHEN I ENTER IT BUT THE 6TH WORKS JUST FINE.

1999 Mercedes Benz E200 • 62,000 miles

I drive a Mercedes-Benz E200 Classic (W210), (it is manual transmission, 6 speed) the problem is when im driving and I go into the fifth gear the engine makes a loud noise like im in the wrong gear and sort of stalls but when I go to the sixth gear it moves just fine. I am worried because I dont want to destroy the engine or overwork it. Thank you

Loud noise as in engine speeds up significantly? It may not be properly going into gear.

Have it scanned for soft and hard codes and let us know what it turns up. You need transmission codes especially.
