=========== =========== Disconect the shift linkage AT the trans.
Run the shift shaft ON the trans back and forth by hand and feel for "detents"......aka "clicking" or "notches" while "running through the gear pattern" . Check to be sure EACH gear position is "hitting"...engaging....crisply with NO slop or looseness.
If you can feel the detents as you hit each gear position... then the shift linkage INSIDE the tranny is ok. These units are WELL known for the linkage nut INSIDE the tranny coming loose and the trans will be stuck in one gear. You won't feel the detents at all when shifting the unit at the tranny likage if this is the case.
If the linkage at the trans feels ok, AND the shift linkage from the shifter to the trans is OK.........then go to a tranny shop....you're not going to fix it yourself.
