0bwrussell 9 years ago Is this a standard or auto, i'm getting mixed signals and it makes a difference. If it's a manual check the oil like @canucksgirl said below and say a prayer because it's probably your syncros and that means a rebuild. If it's an auto it is possible some of the electronics like the neutral safety switch. There is a slim chance that it's your linkage.Does it go into the gear but just pop back out or does it refuse to go in at all? If you hold the shifter in a gear, say 3rd, does it stay and work properly? Have you noticed any slipping ( you push the gas, the engine revs normally but doesn't move forward, or backwards).
