I would pull the trans out, break it down all the way, wash all parts and reassemble it correctly, with new synchro rings etc,checking forks for wear etc as you said. Now that's just me. I don't know if you have those skills,but that is the way to go.

Shifter feels fine and so does the clutch pedal but only goes into first none of the other gears please let us know im thinking about buy this car thanks its a 91 saturn sl

Keep the hell away from it, many things changed after the first model year which was 91, Spend another 50 bucks and get a 92. Pull up the shifter boot and look at the shift cable ends where they attach to the bottom of the shifter. Most likely the bushings will be broken.

91 Tracker wont shift out of first gear.

It sounds like you got an incomplete transmission. The shift shaft shoould have a cup at the end of it to put the shift lever into. I hope this helps.
Thank You,

Shift linkage for standard transmission

There are several vendors, OK maybe only 3 or 4, selling a shifter bushing repair kit on ebay for manual shift S series Saturns 91-99. I have read about what a common problem this is though I have never had it; and I have had 4 manual shift Saturns ....... knock wood. Anyhow I bought a kit, about 20 bucks, and keep it in a bag tucked under neath the shifter boot, 2 small parts and instructions seem straightforward. Note to fix this a dealer will sell you new cables and install them, very expensive!

Car sometimes wont shift out of park

when you press the brake it activates the shift lock in the console beside the shifter this is a very common problem with altima's you need to check and see if they have a recall on the shift lock system

Will not shift out of park

can you move the shifter and it wont go into gear or will the shifter not move at all?? if shifter wont move, there is an electrical solinoid that will not allow the shifter to release when the car is off, that could be faulty, i think it also has a safety mechanism that wont allow it to shift if your foot is not on the brake? if the shifter moves through prn321 but the trans wont come out of park, you have broken the shifter cableand or damaged the shifter mechanism in the trans. hope i have been of some assistance

1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock

if the shifter is loose and sloppy feeling then the shift cable bracket has come loose under the dash at the steering wheel. remove the lower panel under the steering wheel so you can see under the dash then get flash light and look while jiggling the shifter. you should be able to see the cable and bracket. if the bracket is loose then tighten the bolts. note this bracket is at the steering colum.
