I have a 91 Geo Storm GSI that has sat for a long period. The shifter was stiff when I parked it a few months ago, now it's stuck in park. I disconnected the cable from the transmission to see if was the problem, but it moves just fine. The issue seems to be inside the transmission. Anyone else have this problem? Any solutions other than having it rebuilt. It ran fine before I parked it.

Borrow or otherwise use a serial port (ODB II is what a car's serial port is named, after the US Federal Standard) analyzer on the Geo and find out why the Geo thinks better than to offer 3rd & 4th gear; it could be anything from an incorrectly triggered safety case to a bad clutch, transmission or shifter, a motor mount failure detected, or a vacuum line from the carburetor with a nick. If the car's computer has no complaints, then it's an undetected shifter failure and definitely time to get clutch/transmission and other service done (or natch, do the draining and service it yourself while it's still balmy out?)
Just from the model, it is an easy guess that the clutch and mountings need some service every 4 years...
the fuel filter is direclty below the brake booster mounted on the left side fender when your facing the car from front but be careful as to not twist and break the metal hoses on the fittings on the filter
