id be willing to bet the syncro is ok. its the gear selector sleeve that is bad or the little metal ring that goes over the syncro is worn down.

i would say spend the money on getting it fixed. if you go to the junkyard and get a different transmission, whats to say that it doesnt do the same thing or has more problems?

getting your tranny fixed at a shop will cost you $1500+ (trust me i know this from experience, and i will never deal with tranny shops ever again, fucking ripoff)
getting a junkyard tranny and swapping it in will cost you approx. $300
which one would you choose?

not staying in gear or popping out of gear is a well known symptom of a bad synchro

Jersey8 is right^^^ and if you get a crappy tranny at a junkyard, you can go buy 5 more and not pay as much as you would for a tranny shop to do it. (Trust me i know i worked at a shop) Do the junkyard route. easy work.
