I was driving on the highway earlier today and I wanted to go from fourth to fifth but instead I was hitting reverse. It made some funny noises and then i went into fifth. Shouldn't Reverse be blocked out once the vehicle is in motion? Kinda dangerous as it is now.

Reverse lockout solenoid is common failure.

:yeah: but with the gear spinning in totally opposite directions it would be impossible to fully engage it into reverse goin forward maybe you would hear a ZZZZZZZZZZZZZIIIIIIING or some LOUD grinding noise but i dont thing you can engage it. i cant on my civic and the dudes on mythbuster couldnt do it either.

I recently installed a UUC shifter could they have screwed up the install?

no, our shifters are on remote linkage...nothing to screw up.
