First things first. Is the fluid full, You said the clutch still works. ? is it stuck in 2nd? or - only 2nd gear works and no other gear? No reverse? Second thing to check would be to look at the linkage and or cable/ or cables I need more info.

SOURCE: The manual transmission gear shift

take out the console, look on youtube for videos of others doing this. most likely you are going to need a saturn shifter bushing repair kit which you can get on ebay for less than 20 bucks.

SOURCE: 2003 trailblazer shift cable broke loose, now

Ok, here is what you do, slide under vehicle, locate shift lever on side of transmission rotate counter-clockwise two clicks, pop shifter on, hop back inside turn key on depress brake pedal and check shifter, if it falls off again replace cable assembly they do not sell individual bushings, and get cable from dealer.

The end of the shift cable has broken, there is a plastic ring at the transmission end of the cable that breaks. You will need to have it towed to the mechanic.

3rd gear stuck


It could be the cable binding up inside the sleeve or stuck detents inside the transmission. Try to find the cables under the hood, disconnect it from the transmission then try to move the shifter in the direction it was stuck before (side to side or up and down).

Your shifter cable sounds like it separated from the transmission or shifter or just broke. you are probably stuck in a moving gear so the neutral safety switch is disabling the ignition.

Shift cables came loose or off you will need to locate the shift cables and ensure they are tight and not broke sometimes they will break so you may need to replace adjust and tighten up the bracket.

First and reverse shifting problems


sounds like a weary clutch system im sure it will turn out to be. there is a reason you can get into 1st while still rolling a bit and that is because the car rolling and the clutch to the floor are helping the gears in the trans to mesh easier and when stopped the trans gears are stoped and the clutch is not openin enough to let gears mesh so maybe an adjustment or the ultimate a worn clutch,hope i was helpful
