I don't think it is a shift fork if you are easily able to shift up and down through all the gears as you have in the past. The only thing I can think of is some broken teeth on a gear. The tranny would **** or at least make a clicking noise as you ride in 2nd. Go to the website below and locate your bike. Click on the Change Assembly tab then scroll down to transmission. Look at the transmission diagram, Item 2 and 23 and possibly slider gear 36 would be involved. If you find a broken gear, replace it AND replace the gear it meshes with, even if the gear looks okay. Trust me on this.

Your bike has upper and lower case halves. The top end will not need to be torn down for the repair. Even so, you would need to feel confident that you can put it all back together if you decide to try it yourself. The engine sits upside down, the bottom case comes off as does various other components then you have access to the gears and shift forks. I can't say that I recommend the job for a first timer but 40 years ago I was a first timer myself. Don't tear into the bike until you have found a source for new gears. You may want to locate a shop willing to do the job or one willing to take in an engine and tranny in two separate boxes in the event problems come up. The image below should give you an idea of how the gear change mechanism works. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Will go into neutral but will not go into first gear

Assuming you mean with the engine running, you can't go from neutral to first, I sometimes have this problem too.
I'll slowly let out the clutch just a little bit, shifting into 1st as I'm doing so, and it'll drop into gear.
Also, try shifting up into 2nd, then back down to 1st.

If you mean with the engine NOT running, then you have to rock the bike a little either forward or backwards as holding shifter down until gears line up to engage.

Tranny will need to be replaced. You may see if the individual gears can be cheaper to replace if you fix it yourself, (third gear) although I would suggest replacing the entire tranny. If you put new gears into a tranny, they all must be new, or your old ones will ruin the new gear.

The transmission range sensor mounting bolts are slotted so you can adjust it on the transmission. or even better there is an adjusting nut located under the circle cutaway on the driver side of the center console.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd

Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

2001 Dodge grand caravan sport. Transmission slipping/ jerking. Seems to run only in second gear... still slips and jerks. Smells of burnt trans fluid and the level is low on the dipstick.

I need a little mor info. But the reason for the being stuck in 2nd gear is because when something goes wrong with the tranny. it goes into "LIMP" mode wich keeps the trans. from shifting out of 2nd when you are going forward. It does sound like your trans. is gone out though.

2003 SUZUKI GSXR 600 SHIFTING QUESTION I have a 2003 Suzuki GSXR 600 with only 2,500 miles on it (never been dropped or abused im the 2nd owner) and was riding it the other day at around 30mph and suddenly...

The transmission on your bike is not syncronized like a cars trans. When you are trying to shift from neutral at speed you must slow down to allow the gears to mesh. As far as having to rock the bike into gear sometimes, I have owned eighteen motorcycles of different sizes and makes and have had to rock all of them at one time or another to get them in gear. again lack of syncronization. It really doesn't sound as if you have a problem.

just input , not resolving anything. but i used to have a similar issue with mine, but i had a gs 750t . it has around 20,000 on the clock. sometimes it didnt want to shift into 1st from a dead stop, i had to let out on clutch, then pull clutch again , then it went right in. the gears are so fine cut in the bikes that once they get worn, even the shift fork, it gets a little harder to get into those gears without a little coaxing. by the sounds of it (without knowing the mileage) i dont think id worry too much. especially if its shifting up and down through gears without grinding of any sort. if the clutch is ok on it (being an 03) i assume its still touchy , ull be ok
