What could cause the shifter to not go into 2nd, 4th and reverse?
Something fell off the underside on my way to work and now i can only put it
in 1st gear, 3rd and 5th. I'm trying to figure out what the problem is.
Manual transmissions have a shifter rod where you shift the gears "the stick u move" into each gear they have a linkage that controls that. They also have in the gearbox synchros that actually allow you to pop it into individual gears one or 2 of your syncros could have gone bad? I would say take it to a transmission shop and let them diagnose it. It could be as simple as a linkage got separated off of a bracket or something and they need to tighten it up again let them show you what's wrong before you pay for anything.
