Ask Someone: 2006 Honda Civic - Pops out of gear

I was wondering why my 2006 Honda Civic Si won’t stay in gear once I shift. It won’t lock and stay in place. It keeps popping back out to neutral. Can anyone give any insight to what the problem maybe. Thanks in advance

What type of transmission do you have? Automatic or manual.

If it is a manual, popping out of gear could be caused by a bad engine mount or internal wear requiring the transmission be removed and disassembled for repair.

If it is an automatic, again, a bad engine mount is likely the problem.

So?

Is this your first time driving a vehicle with a manual transmission?
