Default New here, Bad Shifting Problems need help

Ok, it's my neighbour's 01 LE 5 speed. He said it progressed to this condition.

So, I went to put it in 1st and it doesn't want to go, then I tried all other gears and it doesn't go in any gear when engine is running. When engine is off no problem going into gear, I also put it in first and started the car and it started. I saw the bushings of the shifter cables were gone, so i modified some old bushings from my Galant and made them fit. Then all the sudden It shifted very smoothly thru out all gears. Drove it around and i noticed it started getting choppy and by the time I went to the garage I completely couldn't get it into any gear again. Looked at the slave and the fork and it goes all the way to the other side. Also, I noticed that there were no adjustments rods neither on master or slave cylinder. 5 min later it started to shift again and then it stopped.

Any thoughts, recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Also, just ordered the replacement shifter cable bushings.

Where is the bleeder screw, I may flush the fluid.


Thanks
