Question about Cars & Trucks
Just push the gear down towards your left, and then when you go to third push it to the middle and just a little to the right, it will seem like you're putting it back on first, but it should be third

"Generally" in manual transmissions, first and reverse gear are on the same gear cluster, thus if one works both do.
However, the remaining gears are on what 'used' to be referred to as the 'cluster gear' and this 'cluster' could fail, still leaving you with first and reverse gears.
Hope this helps.

The shift lever relay is almost certainly out. I just had this happen to me a few weeks ago...be careful driving around in third, you don't want your clutch out too. You can open the hood to manually (by hand) get into reverse by lifting up on the shift lever arm and rotating towards you. I imagine you might be able to find the others, but I had a hard time doing so. At any rate the part should be about 38.00 and $165.00 to have put in at the dealership. I paid like 212.00$...lord knows why this pretty important piece was made of plastic.
Again, watch the clutch.

u need to adjust the shift linkage cables, the adjustment is made at the trans end of the shift cables, very involved, u will need a repair manual to get it right and also a possible set of new shift cables as well..

I would start with a transmission fliud and filter service.
I would then have the trasnmission checked out by a transmission shop. The transmission most of the time has the direct drum band is starting to go. The shops can rebuild it no problem, This is a very common failure wiith the trasnmission.

Testimonial: "Thanks alot richtko94'! I'll try that!"
The simple answer is that there are two loose nuts in the transmission.
The output shaft nuts are loose. The are behind a cover that you can see through the driver's side wheel well.
