Check linkage bars from shifter to transmission you will find 2 of them generally what happens is that the ball or pivot gets worn and ends up falling off.

Extended cab. How do I uncross gears?


if you are stuck in gear it is not a basic rebuild but a bad rebuild
because of the design of the gear selection process , it is impossible to have 2 gears selected together as one selector shaft will not move unless another selector shaft is in the correct position ( neutral ) to allow the detente balls to move out of the way so the next selector shaft can move
it is possible that the gear stick is not in the correct position when it was installed back onto the top of the box and one gear was selected and the end of the lever came out of the selector slot or all the selectors were not in the neutral position and so the end of the lever went behind a selector rail
pull the gear lever turret of the top of the box, move the selector rails until they all line up as a slot across all of them , then put the gear lever end back in that neutral slot

2005 pt cruiser, stuck in 5th gear


Check the gear linkage cable (very common problem) look down inside engine bay towards top of bell case (thats where the linkage meets with selector arm. Get someone to wiggle the gear stick while you observe selector arm. (if you move the air box out of the way you can reach down and de-select the gear with your hand- should get you neutral at least)... I'll keep an eye out for any reply...

Stuck in neutral


If you can select gears then it is not stuck in neutral. To be stuck in neutral means that you can only move the lever sideways and no where else. Now the problem is probably the clutch is in constant disengaged position This is from a hydraulic lock in the system from a faulty master cylinder/ jammed cable. As 4 gear is a straight through gear( Input shaft is connected directly to out put shaft) then the 2 causes for this --one not properly engaged and 2 loose or misaligned gear box bolts at the bell housing. So check hydraulics system/ cable and check that the gear box is not loose

Renault trafic stuck in second gear


There is one of 2 problems that will give this indication. The first is the gear lever end in the shift rail has moved out of the slot and is behind the slot and not moving it . This can be checked by removing the lever mount from the top of the box and physically moving the shift rail back into the neutral position then replacing the gear lever back into the selector gate and moving the rail again.. The second possible fault is that the selector fork has come loose on the rail and is not moving the gear (just sliding on the rail) If that is the case the box will have to come out unless you can see the selector fork and the lock screws from the top of the box when the lever mount is removed.. If you can move the selector rod forward and tightening up the lock screw then pulling it back to neutral. Repeat until the fork is back in neutral position and lock it up. Most lock screws have a hole and there is wire tied around the shaft to prevent the screw coming loose. If the box has been reconditioned at some time then it is possible that the person doing the job neglected the wire bit.

Stuck in low gear won't go in to hi gear


Just a suggestion...if you are talking about the two speed transfer case, the vehicle must be running and in neutral to switch between gear ranges. Neutral, running, foot on braks and then try switching gear ranges, Hope this is the answer you are looking for. If not, explain more what you are seeking.

Transmission is stuck in reverse but the shifter is in neutral and will not go in gear


Check for wear in the gear lever selector/gate mechanism.
It may have allowed the lever to select reverse, the 'jump' the lockout gate back to neutral position for selection of forward gears.
You may be able to de-select reverse if you access the lever directly at the gearbox case.
