This happened 2 or 3 days ago, and everytime I shift into 4th, apply a little gas, it pops out and goes back into neutral. I changed the transmission fluid and its still doing the same thing. I also installed a competition stage 2 clutch about 2mo ago, what do I do?

There used to be a similar problem back with the old 3rd gen TL's. Those gearboxes were infamous for popping out of 3rd gear. Switching out to GM synchromesh MTF solved my issues with that car.

Have you swapped out the MTF yet? If not, how many miles do you have on your car?

I had this issue before and my issue was that the drain plug wasn't tightened properly

Sounds like 4th gear is giving up. How many miles on the civic? How are your shifting habits?
