Does the shifter feel very loose? ... then you might have an issue with the linkage between the shifter knob and the transmission. If the shifter is VERY loose, take off the panels around the shifter and look at the workings of the gearbox. The shift lever should be connected to a pivot point (which is what holds the lever in place). This will probably just look like a metal plate over what you are going to need to look at. Under the pivot point the bottom of the shift lever should be connected to a metal bar that runs towards the engine -- this shaft is what actually controls the gears in the transmission. If the shift lever is separated from the shaft running to the transmission, re-attaching it should resolve your issue.

If your shifter lever is not loose, or you have corrected the above issue, and your car will still not go into gear, then you most likely have a problem with your clutch. If it is worn out, or stuck open for some reason, even when your transmission is in gear, the power from the engine will not transfer to the transmission. If this is the case, I recommend taking the car to a mechanic (or have one come to you). The clutch is a complex system that requires experience and training to work on it.
If your car is an automatic and is not going into gear, try checking on the neutral switch on your transmission. If you do not know where this is, have a professional check it out. The neutral switch is a small connector in the transmission that can be disabled for the purpose of towing the car. If for some reason this is malfunctioning, or has been disconnected, the car will not go into any gear, but will stay in neutral, allowing the wheels to turn without the engine running. If your car was towed recently, this is a likely scenario.

Follow your shift arm on the trans- they had a cheap nylon snap socket to hold them on

SOURCE: 97 mazda 626 wont shift from park. release button on side of shifter wont push in. removed knob, plastic rod in center wont move

The 1st thing you need to do is check the brake lights, if they are not wiorking the park lock solenoid doesn't get power and the park lock remains engaged.
