Check the shift cable for kinks and if the mounting areas are loose or the snaps that keep it in place has been moved out of alignment

Check the fluid level in you slave cylinder. If the fluid is low or there is air in the system it can cause hard shifting. If everything is ok it is problably the syncros.

The gear shift gets stuck and won't shift into other gears.Will put it reverse and then try to put in drive and it gets stuck in reverse.


Either the shift knob or the actuator rod under the shift knob has worn out.
Remove the shift knob and pull the actuator rod (plastic) out of the shift lever and inspect it for wear or damage. If the rod is not worn or damaged, replace the shift knob and you will be good to go.
Good luck.
