The linkage on your stick shift has probably broken off the cable that goes to your tranny

Clicking in stickshift when I shift gears


The clicking could be due to worn shifter linkage bushings. As for the chatter you may need to replace the clutch and resurface the flywheel.

Hello, The first thing you need to have someone look at is the Brake pedal lever under the dash. This part of the starter Interlock system is the one which requires you to have your foot on the Brake before trying to start the car. With a Stickshift the switch can be on the clutch lever.

The underdash control switch often gets hit by the Driver's feet when entering or exiting the vehicle. Both Automatics and the Stickshift share this problem. Check and see if a switch looks broken or crooked in a holder.

The car has an Interlock switch to cut off power to the starter if the Gearshift is not in Park or Neutral(Stickshift). The idea is to prevent someone from starting the car in a travel gear. Any forward or reverse gear is a travel gear. The shift linkage may not be lining up to the correct gear.
The shift linkage may be out of adjustment or stretched.

Call your Dealer and ask if they have any TSB's for problems on your car if you find the problem to be in the shifter. I remember similar problems in one series of small Ford products, but can not reference it now.

I hope my solution will be very helpful in solving your problem.

Wont shift into reverse while running and shifts hard into other gears


Assuming its a stickshift (you didn't say) it's likely your clutch isn't working properly...either low fluid level or clutch is worn.
