If this is a manual car with an mtx 75 gear shifter is stuck more than likely the cable linkages broke. i believe you have the 2 end pieces one black one white. jack the car up on the driver side take the wheel off and take a look at the two lines running together more than likely the white one broke they are prone to break its only cost like 20 dollars. let me know what you find. the next thing i can think of is that the bottom bolt on the shift tower broke causing loss of all gears the bolt usually falls into the transmission if that is what happen do not start the car is it may send the broken bold flying out of the transmission casing.
it definitely sounds like a shifter cable issue
