Question about 1990 Ford Probe
I think you need to take the vehicle back and take gear box off and try to assertain why the input shaft has broken.Your able to put it in gear because the shaft that drives the gear box has broken.Sorry to say but it sounds like the gear box has failed.It may be repairable but would be rather expensive.Its not likely to be the clutch because it would not allow you to put it in gear if the internal gearbox assembly was rotating its not crunching asyou put it into gear so that tells me nothing in the gearbox is spinning and its the input shaft that supplies that rotation from the engine.The only other thing i can think of is that the input shaft has broken at the flywheel,end and not inside the gearbox.if this is the case it may be a cheaper repaiar as you dont need to replace internal gear box parts unless its deemed worn and unservicable by repairer

The front drive axle on one side may have not been installed all the way in to the transmission, check to see if it is loose and have some one look under front end with engine on, front end jacked up, emergency brake on and in gear to see if a axle is turning. if one is and yhe other is not put the car in park and turn\ roll the wheel that was not turning by hand if it rolls your problem is most likley to be the axle has come loose from the transmission
