I"m looking to buy this Dodge Stealth and if you hit the accelerator it will jump out of 4th gear you can lay your hand on it and it will stay in gear it will not however go into 5th gear at all the car runs perfect otherwise and all other gears are working fine. Please let me know what possibilities I'm looking at for repairing this problem. Thanks

Try adjusting the cables, and have a look at all the bushings on shift mech. SELECT CABLE 1. Place transaxle side shift lever in Neutral. This will also place transaxle side select lever in Neutral. See Fig. 1 . 2. Loosen selector cable adjuster nuts (inside of vehicle). See Fig. 2 . With select lever in Neutral, adjust select cable end until eye fits easily over select lever pin. Tighten adjuster nuts. Fig. 1: Transaxle Control Cables (Typical) Courtesy of MITSUBISHI MOTOR SALES OF AMERICA. Fig. 2: Adjusting Select Cable (Typical) Courtesy of MITSUBISHI MOTOR SALES OF AMERICA. SHIFT CABLE & GEARSHIFT LEVER 1. With transaxle select lever in Neutral, move gearshift lever into 4th gear. It may be necessary to depress clutch pedal. 2. Loosen shift cable adjuster nuts (inside of vehicle). Disconnect cable end from shift lever pin. Tilt gearshift lever into 4th gear position until it touches stopper. See Fig. 3 . Hold lever in this position, and adjust shift lever cable until it aligns with shift lever pin. 3. Move shift lever between 3rd, Neutral and 4th gear positions. Shift lever-to-stopper clearances should be equal on both sides of lever. See Fig. 3 . If clearances "A" and "B" are not equal, readjust shift cable. Road test vehicle to ensure proper adjustment and smooth shifting.
