Mitsubishi Space Star 1.3 2000 5th gear problem

I have recently acquired a 2000 Space Star 1.3i 16v base model.
Very pleased with it.
However, when changing into 5th gear, the engine revs increase. After experimenting with gear changes, being in 5th gear is identical to being in 4th. I have no rev counter as base model, so can't actually measure the revs in gears at certain speeds.
Any ideas? I've heard it may be bushes or bearings, and if so, is this within the capabilities of a DIY mechanic?

ODBII scanner will be able to montior RPM output...

Is it actually engaged into 5th? Might need to take the thing apart and rebuild part of it.
