SOURCE: isuzu trooper stuck in 1st gear
Likely the forks on the shift rail inside the trans are sliding on the shaft or are worn. I believe your unit needs to be removed to check this.

Hi, if your car is manual gear box and its stuck in first then it could be one of a couple of things if the gear stick is solid and wont move out of the first gear possition then the chances are that it could be either the clutch has gone or the thrust bearing on the clutch has failed these parts both come in a clutch kit.
you could try rocking the car backwards and forwards whilst moving the gearstick to see if it frees up out of first gear.
Can you start the car up with the clutch pressed down and drive the car in first gear as normal if this is the case and you can drive the car in first gear and the clutch seems fine then it could be a more serious fault inside the gearbox even broken selector in the box.
let me know the outcome then i can assist you further ok

Testimonial: "How do I know if it is a broken selector"
As your Auto transmission is fully electronic, it could be anything from faulty sensors sending incorrect signals to the trans computer, or faulty internal components. Your best bet is to have the trans computer scanned for 'fault codes' (as the computer monitors and retains all faults) by your local Ford dealership.
This process will identify the likely component/s which are causing this problem.
My guess is, there may be a problem with the 2nd clutch (yes that's right, automatics have internal clutches!), input and/or output shaft switches sending incorrect signals to the computer.
But, there could be so many other possibilities....so, I recommend you get the codes scanned and go from there.....

If your sure it is acually going into gear than check the auto hubs, they go bad alot. also you can with help from a 2nd person jack the truck up all 4wheels put the truck in 4x4 and drive and see if both drive shafts spin if they do its the hubs if the front one doesnt, its the transfer case

You have the same problem as a previous guy, its the ball and socket at the end of the gearstick, its worn out, or just popping out of it's socket so the bolts holding it down or the large nut the is holding the gearstick in needs tightening. So best to remove it, check for wear and if it is ok then use a loctite glue to refit the main nut over the gear lever.
Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.
