Question about Cars & Trucks
So I got a 2002 mercury cougar 4cyl, 5 speed, and my transmission went out. We decided since we were putting a new transmission in, we mise well replace the clutch and flywheel. In addition, we replaced both axels, rotors, hubs, seals, oil, transmission fluid and tires. Now, my car starts fine and moves, but it doesn't have 3rd,4th,5th gear. And it's leaking transmission fluid? Any suggestions on what it could be. We're stuck!

Sounds like you may have bent a shift fork or your cluster gear has some missing teeth on it now. I would venture to say that is it a bent shift fork. This will require the transmission be removed to gain access to inspect and repair.

The brake master cylinder reservoir has a separate chamber and is used to supply the hydraulic clutch system. So make sure master cylinder reservoir is full.
Here is a pic of the system.

MCARTER859: check the connections where the transmission harness and engine room harness come together. Unplug them and reconnect them I have run into more than one case with the same symptoms as yours which ended up being nothing more than poor connections.

Unless I make a visual and mechnical inspection of your transaxel, the cause of the problem could be several things (i.e., differential splines or bearing damaged during removal & reinstallation of drive axel, physical damage to oil seal (both times), physical damage to output shaft where the oil seal mates/seals with the shaft, cracked differential case, combination of all these, etc.
