Could be syncros or a gear problem.

It would probably be cheaper and easier to just replace the trans.

most likely a bad trans, i just swaped my shitty trans out for the better 3.55 and magically i have 5th gear again.

It's not the fall that hurts, it's the sudden stop at the bottom!

There could be any number of things causing the problem. Without more details, its hard to say. It could be as simple as a shift linkage problem.
