4th gear pops out! 89' 325i

I own a 1989 325i 5speed manual tranny. Odometer frozen at 225k miles. Stock motor and tranny. It only pops out of fourth gear. Iv been told its not the clutch but the synchro rings? Or the throwout bearing? And someone else recommended just swapping the tranny. If anyone knows a little more about this or have come across this problem help me out or give me feedback. Please & thank you.

pop the fill plug out and look at the tranny fluid. if its silvery/metallic, its the syncros. if it looks normal, its something else

I know a lot about cars. I can look at a car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming
