My 1991 mbz 190e wont shift into other gears

My car wouldnt pass smog and so my ex husband messed with it to get it to pass. It did. But, the next day it was stuck in 3 rd gear. We have figured out that the tranny has been replaced so that can't be problem. I am a single mom and cant truely afford to take it in to a shop. Can you give me any advice. Strange thing is that sometimes it works not when I am driving of course. Everyone seems to think it its something simple but ?
