My Chevy cavalier has a 5speed manual transmission. It won't go into gear and no matter where I move the shifter it's like it's in neutral. The cable isn't broke but it won't go into gear.

you need a clutch.

on mine the part that the linkage goes on to that connects to the transmission and it goes into the transmission a cotter pin rusted away on it I had to pull that part out of the transmission and then drill and tap the old cotter pin out and I actually use the nut and bolt to fix it. it is not the clutch
