The first cause of the jump out from one to other gear is the loose shifter fork, which connects the shifting linkage and gears of the transmission.

The second cause is loose shifting linkage itself, which connects the gear shifting knob and shifting fork. The shifting linkage and shifting fork become loose due to the rapid changing of gears from one gear to other at high speed of vehicle.

The third cause is the misalignment of shifting linkage to the shifting fork.
