How many miles are on it? Has it ever been rebuilt?

The 3-4 shiftier hub from the factory was weak and they tended to crack and break, causing additional damage sometimes. The part was modified by VW to make it stronger. This would be my concern - depending on the history of the transaxle.

Linkage adjustment is a possible cause - but the intermittent nature of the problem would seem to suggest it is not the problem. But you can always check the adjustment.

My Syncro trans has started to pop out of 4th gear, just on application of throttle (Subaru 2.2 motor). It's been fine for 50K miles; was a used trans when I installed it. Odd thing is that this began a couple years ago, then the problem would go away. Then return again, and go away for months. But now it seems back to stay.

Could this be some adjustment needed? There's a lot going on in the box under the shift lever, so I'm reluctant to start messing with it, Any advice is welcome.
