Firebird Has Gear Problem

Q. I have an 1989 Pontiac Firebird with a V-6, 5-speed. It has about 45,000 miles on it. When shifting into third gear from first or second, everything is fine. But it will not shift into third from fourth or fifth gear. What could this be?

A. The most likely cause is a worn out synchronizer inside the transmission.
