    Do you have a floor shift or column? If it is column, there is shifting arm under the hood that leads from shift lever to trans . Sounds as if it has popped off either on the trans end or on upper column end..Good luck

It could be that the clutch is hanging up somehow. It will give you the same symtoms. I would also look at the shifting linkage. Possible but doubtful. Check to be sure.

Shifter is in neutral. Why is manual transmission stuck in 3rd gear?

Internal transmission breakage has stuck the thing in 3rd gear. Stalls when putting in other gears because transmission is then being put into 2 gears at once. Better look into getting another transmission of having the current unit overhauled and repaired.

I have problems when I shift from 2 to 3. It make a metal sound just when I shall put it in the 3 gear. The rest of the gears are ok. The Volvo is a 850 GLE 2.5 l 288 000 km.

It sounds like you have a worn syncroniser gear.
You may be able to double clutch between 2 and 3 to get a gring free gear change.
A reoair would require a tranmission d removal and repair.

How to double clutch
push clutch to remove from 2 and stop in neutral-let the clutch out while in neutral.
Wait a second, then push in the clutch and put in 3 and let the clutch out.

This is how transmissions in old trucks without syncronisers are shifted.

Hope this helps

Car wont roll forward or back even in neutral

I assume it's a manual transmission.
If the car will not roll backward or forward in neutral (with or without the clutch engaged) the transmission is most likely locked in two gears at the same time.
This may happen if gear selectors are excessively worn. If you are able to examine the gear selection levers external to the gearbox, ensure they are in the 'neutral' (no gear selected) position when the gear lever is in Neutral. If not in correct position, you may be able to manually reset the levers to correct neutral position and thereby unlock the gearbox.
In any case, if it's happened once, it will happen again, so get the gearbox and gear selection mechanism checked for wear or breakage.

86 fiero gt: 4spd-acts like neutral in all 4 gears

If you're not experiencing a burning smell, it's most likely a clutch adjustment. The clutch appears to remain partially engaged and without adjustment, will eventually burn out. A symptom of this would be the RPM's being higher than normal when shifting.

Tranny problems 03' Dodge Neon sxt 2.0

not sure on the set up of whether its rods or cables on this model for your gear linkages but sounds like one has either detached or broken which should be a relatively easy fix and not too expensive.Get a friend to move through gears while you look under to see whats moving and whats not.
