I happens when the gear is not fully engaged.. It happen sometimes when i'm really lazy and don't step on the clutch that much :) It goes in gear but it pops right back out when you step on the gas really hard.

I had this happen on my old 1985 Celica convertible. The dealer had to replace 2nd gear. It only happened when the engine was really hot like after driving for awhile on the highway.

Good luck

It could be the gear or it could be a bent shift fork. Have you ever been heavy handed with the shift lever?

yup, thats probably it, it's happened to me twice, both times while shifting hard and flooring it. gear wasn't fully engaged, so it popped out
