you need a new clutch kit and make sure gear oil in level may need refresh and inspect and grease shifter linkage for smother shifting you can update with 42 dizayn's linkage kit for vw it is works great.
Possible causes are: The clutch is going out, the hydraulic clutch system is low on fluid, or the transmission input shaft is binding on the pilot bearing. 1. Is the pedal firm and does it feel like it used to? (low fluid). 2. Once in gear and moving push on clutch and notice when the transmission disengages. If it does not disengage until the pedal is almost at the top then the clutch is getting thin and will need replacing. 3. With vehicle on a smooth flat surface, depress clutch and try to shift into any and all gears. Notice if vehicle tries to lurch forward as shifter goes into gear. This may be a subtle lurch but should be noticeable. This checks for a binding pilot bushing. Let me know what you find. Thanks and please rate.
It will probably be a bad bearing in the tranny. I've had it happen to me a couple of times, and found it easier to just swap the tranny with another good used one, than to tear the thing apart, and try to replace the bearing. The clutch has nothing to do with it popping out of gear. Once the bearing goes, the shaft runs on a bit of an angle, and won't stay in gear.
start with the clutch fluid, is it full? check the clutch cable from the pedal to the transmission, does it have a lot of play in it, is it adjustable? check the bushings on the shifter base, does the shifter itself have a lot of play in it? i'd start with those, if all those are ok then it might be the clutch itself. when a clutch gets worn down it doesn't release fully causing a hard shift or grinding when going into gear. put the truck on a flat surface so it doesn't free roll at all, with the engine off, put the truck in first or reverse, press the clutch pedal fully to the floor and start the engine. let off the brake. if the truck moves at all it means your clutch cable is out of adjustment or its just getting worn out. provifing the shifter and the fluid level is good.
Sounds to me that the shifter broke, i believe the shifter has a ball end that slips into a pocket in trans. that moves for gear selection and that ball brook off end of shifter. if its got a linkage set up most likely samething either shifting arms came off or shifter broke where linkage rods connect.
If your clutch is not disengaging completely it makes it difficult to get into gear. If it was one gear it may be a synchronizer, but from your description I would say its the clutch.
If your clutch actuator is hydraulic, your master or slave cylinder may be causing the problem. When the seals start to go bad, the clutch will not disengaged completely.
There is usually a dimension in the maintenance manual about checking the gap between the clutch disc and the flywheel. Your local library should have some sort of maintenance manual or perhaps you could find some figures online.
I would look at the clutch itself, if the fluid was low has it got a leak? if the hydraulic system is low and it is leaking you will not have enough travel to engage the clutch. or the pressure plate of the clutch is not releasing the clutch correctly. You should take it to a good transmission shop, who will most likely find the solution.
I had a similar problem except i could shift to first and third and fifth but not 2nd or 4th or reverse. the only thing that came to my mind was new transmission but that is not the case. It was a way i could but it was so frustrated. I am certain it is the shifting cables. The name of the part you need to get is TRANSMISSION SHIFTING CABLES. Only the dealership has them, about $200.00 got them and installed but a certified mechanic. I have no problems shifting into any gear at all. Hope this information helps.

Before you do anything pop the little cent rag off the stick shift and lube up the assembly, and lube anything you can see that moves. my girlfriends cavy was doing this and also my cousins sunfire and it fixed it both times!!!!! try silicone lube, or maybe even wd40!! theres a white piece up under the console you can barley see lube that up !
