Most likely a broken fork bolt or shift fork itself. You will have to open trans to find issue.

Check the cable clips at the trans. Sometimes these clips come out and won't shift. Horseshoe clips that hold the cable housing.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear

Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

SOURCE: I have a 1984 Ford Ranger 4 Speed manual shift.

Hi,
You have the same problem as a previous guy, its the ball and socket at the end of the gearstick, its worn out, or just popping out of it's socket so the bolts holding it down or the large nut the is holding the gearstick in needs tightening. So best to remove it, check for wear and if it is ok then use a loctite glue to refit the main nut over the gear lever.
Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Get out gear that stuck in


I used to have an old Holden that did that. On the side of the gearbox were 2 levers that changed between gears. Sometimes if I was a bit quick on changing gears , it used to lock into 1st and reverse at the same time. By using a shifter spanner, I would crawl under the car and manually move 1 gearlever at a time until they clicked into the correct position. You may have the same problem where the gearbox has stuck in 2 gears. Have a play with the shifters while someone moves the gearlever to see if it will drop back into its correct position.
