My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.

If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

My 2004 chevy cavalier won't start it is stuck in

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.

I reversed my car and went to shift into drive and it was stuck in reverse. Now that i parked the car it is stuck in neutral with the ebrake on and will no shift any other way

It could easily be a linkage problem, or something inside the car on the shifter internally in broken (the safety lock) may not be working. Check that first. That would be the easiest and cheapest fix. Pick a part will have these pars a dime a dozen. Good luck, hope this has been helpful.

I was driving the Chevy Cavalier. A 1998. I was in first gear until about 3500 rpm, and when i went to put it into second, it slipped down into fourth gear. Now it is stuck in fourth gear, and wont go...

Sounds like you have a broken or disconnected shift cable.There are two cable attaching at different angles.Either disconnected at trans or below shifter.

Manual transmission stuck in reverse in my mx-5 miata even though shifter appears to be in neutral position

You will have to remove the center console and then the shifter asm. look down inside where the shifter goes and you will see 3 selectors one will be out of position. You will need to pop it back inline with the other 2. After that look at the bottom of the shifter ther should be a bushing on the very end, if it is not there you will need to get one from your dealer, they are like 8 dollars and then you just pop it on and reasemble in reverse order and you should not have any more trouble.

Manual transmission will not go into reverse

Anythings possible I guess but first I'd just get that area & linkages lubed up first. You may even be able to remove boot inside & spray downward from there. Use a spray grease like white lithium or similar.
