Shifter not staying put

I just picked up a 2002 mitsubishi eclipse spyder gt manual tranny and all the gears work except, when I put the car in 5th and let go of the shifter it would mover over like it was in 3rd. Its the same for all the outside gears, they would move back in the center. The transmission shifts fine and it stays it does switch gears but the shifter just doesn't want to stay where I leave it. Any ideas?

Did you take the shifter apart? The most obvious suggestion is to take it apart and see if anything is broken.

You need to check your transmission links and see if there's anything forcing to do so, and also remove the whole shifter assembly and inspect it for any cracks blockage along the lines under the console.
