Leaving work tonight, i put my car in reverse and it never went in. I thought it did but nothing happened. It will engage 1st gear . It doesn't seem to feel like its cycling through the other gears and kinda moves freely except for first and maybe 2nd... it feels really tight moving the shifter right to left in neutral , it doesn't move all the way to the right. I didnt want to force anything.
My clutch feels fine ..
Is this a linkage problem ? Just want to have a idea on where to go next . Btw this is a 1997 grand am se 2.4 5 speed coupe ..
Not uncommon to have the cables stretch.
You can try to move the shifter by hand in the engine bay.
