If you are unable to get the shifter to go into hear, the most likely problem is a bad clutch. Have the clutch hydraulics checked as well as the release bearing.

SOURCE: transmission

If it is a 5 speed manual, then you add Transmission oil under the car on the upper side of the transmission. Under the hood on fire wall side there is the speedometer cable. You must remove lock down bolt with # 10 socket and lift straight up. That is where you add/check your Transmission fluid on a 5 speed. Clean the area first and it's fairly simple. 
The tube where the dipstick for the Automatic transmission is where you add the Transmission fluid. You will probably need one of those funnels with the really long neck, so that you can get the fluid into the tube without pouring it all over the place. Be careful that you don't overfill the transmission!

Good luck and hope this helps.

Transmission problems

This is what my 04 Kia Rio is doing exactly. I was told that the TCM and Shift Solenoid "C" is faulty. Am trying to figure out how to go about fixing that without paying more than the car is worth. My tech checked with the local Kia dealership and the TCM new is I think around $700. You also have to buy the program to tell this high dollar part what to do and that is right at $100. I have found that sometimes if I let the car warm up and then keep hitting the overdrive button, eventually it starts shifting correctly.
