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.

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

Was driving my 92 Chevy caviler 5speed then all of a sudden it. Would go anymore just idle wouldn't catch the gears pulled over to reverse and it would just idle what happen can u tell me

2005 Manual 5 spd it was the roll pin on the linkage atop the transmission
