My car is stuck in first gear. I think i got something that hit underneath and the gear handle is stuck.
you could first of all try looking under your gearbox where the arm attaches from your gearstick... this seems unlikley but if sumthing hit up under you it may have gotten lodged or bent somthing... I dunno... personally i really really doubt it, a more likeley scenario is that somthing has gone wrong inside the gearbox or just around your gear stick.... If it was me and I'm no mechanic so i dunno if theres an easy way to test, but I'd be taking off that control arm from under the gearbox and just tryin to change gear by hand... If this works then you know ur gearbox may be in with a little luck and the solution may be simple ;) well best of luck from this noob ... anyhows if you get really pissed off like me you could always just apply excessive force to your gearstick in the hope of unlodging somthing :P or breaking if farther.. best of luck.... by the way, what happened exactley when it got stuck... were you just driving along and then all of a sudden you heard a kinda smashing / grinding noise :P if so I'd be looking at your gearbox, just check ur throwout bearing is in good nic cuz i seen a car in the wreckers and all that was wrong was the throwout,... $20 later it was back on the road...
