Sounds like the linkage is out of adjustment. This happens when shifter bushings go wear out. You will need to adjust the linkage to make the car driveable, for a temporary solution, but you will probably also need to replace any bushings that have worn out. Hope this helps. Have a nice day :O)

    Thank you. It did sound like there was a problem w/ the bushings at before this happened. That's probably it. I had a mechanic check it a few minutes ago and he said it was the clutch. I should ask him to check the bushings

Why is hwy gas mileage worse for a manual transmsion compared to automatic? 2004 crv

It should be the opposite. It may be that you are reving your engine higher than is needed before you shift. Also when slowing down at a stop light use neutral & take your foot off the gas then when restarting up if still coasting select the highest gear you can & accelerate moderately & change up asap. The sooner your in the highest gear possible the better the gas mileage. Happy motoring & I hope you save oddles of money following these tips. Good luck!

My 1999 moutaineer has a chime which goes off after I start the car. It doens't sound exactly like the seat belt chime. It continues for 5 minutes, even when all seat belts are fashened. Any ideas? Nothing...

sound like Neutral switch warning.

Check if your reverse light works.
If not replace it and you will probably be changing your neutral switch. unless you change it before it goes.

Incidentally when it goes the car will not be able to be put in gear once started.
It will be able to drive only if it is started in Neutral.
Good luck.
