on my way home from work, i was coming up to a stop light like usually downshifting into 3rd around 25-30mph then second gear around 15-20mph
slowing down to a complete stop. light turned green and gradually took off shifting into second around 12mph cruised on up to about 30 and went for third gear and i got nothing. felt like it went in like usual but nothing there went back to second gear and tried agian and same thing...i pulled over and sat there to try and engage 3rd gear. slowly let off the clutch, so i tried 4th gear and same about 20 minutes from home, mostly freeway. so i have to shift from 2nd to 5th to get home. note:1st, 2nd, 5th, reverse all work fine. what happend to 3rd nd 4th

brought into local dealer yesterday to find out my box with only 50k on the od, is no under factory warrenty nd the only problem is my shifter bushings and cables. which is not the case. i personaly tried to engage 3rd gear from transmission directly without gear selector installed. you can tell right off the bat by comparing to 1,2,5,r that there is nothing there for 3rd gear. im am now out 154$ for diagnosis with no real answer help please anyone
The dealer said they couldnt fix it?
Ahh I see. so you engaged 3rd and 4th gear and feel there is nothing there? Did you try rolling the car or at least jack the car up in the front while it was engaged in those gears and spin the wheels? It felt like it was in neutral?
Did the dealer think that 3rd and 4th gear were gone too? what was the mechnics conclusion besides trying to throw parts in it?
