I think I figured out why 5th gear was sometimes acting up. The aftermarket passengers side CV axle popped out and dumped the oil out of the trans, so it was running low on oil for who knows how long. I popped it back in and the same thing happened again 3 days later. Bit the bullet and bought a new OEM Honda axle, which was about 1/8 of an inch longer than the aftermarket axle. I guess that's why it was popping out because it was too short. Anyways, a month later the trans is still full of oil and I haven't felt anything weird with any of the forward gears since so I guess it survived.
