It sounds as if you have set a code in the transmission. This should be accompanied by a light, or a message in the drivers information module. You have entered a limp home mode, and the car will only perform limited functions after that. You will need to have the transmission control module scanned for codes, and a solution can be found after that. If your in Maine look up my shop on the web at

I was driving down the road went to shift gears in my 91 civic 5 speed,and had no gears and heard noise and dragging on the road. i pulled over. i guess its the gear shift rod disconnected? but anyhow...

I believe it is really just a bolt. If I remember right, it probably has a shoulder on it so that you can't over tighten the retaining nut.
Funny thing is that it had to be on the road right where it happened, so you probably stopped only a hundred feet away from it.
But at the dealer, they will show you an exploded diagram and you will only have to point to it.
Your description is all they need to get to the right diagram.

Car not excelerating in drive

Listen when pulling away to hear if the transmission is shifting gears. It may be stuck in gear or your gear shift selector has moved and you are putting it in one of the gears and not Drive.
