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.

Did you get this figured out? I’ve been having the same issue for a while now and have no idea the cause.

I had an issue with my automatic when in sport mode.. I took off the cover and found a key for the ignition jammed in the shifter...along with coffee cup lids ..candy wrappers. a key for one of those bars you put on your steering wheel /anti theft system ect....
