Worn Shift Bushings Will Cause Manual Transmission to Pop Out of Gear on Toyota Corolla

On vehicles with a manual transmission, worn shift bushings can cause the transmission to pop out of gear, especially when coasting down in 1st or 2nd gear. Replacing all the shift linkage bushings is pretty straight forward and not expensive and will commonly correct this concern.
