Default 2005 Manual Trans Not Shifting...

Hi everyone! I found this site and I'm hoping someone will know what's up with my car!!! I have a 2005 PT and my manual Tranmission suddenly won't shift into reverse, First or Fifth gear! We were parking the car and I let my freind parallel park for me and now my car isn't shifting??!! Well it will go into second, Third, and fourth only. Does anyone have a clue as to what could be wrong, and how to fix??

Most likely the bushings on the shift cables at the transmission are rotted out. Fairly common problem. Chrysler does not offer the bushings but there is a company called Booger Bushings that has them I believe.

My 2006 would not move after releasing the clutch. Replaced the shifter cable bushings after seeing it was not connected. (Located under the air cleaner box) Did not solve the problem. Dealer only sells the complete cable $350. Advanced Auto had the bushing kit $23. Easy fix after watching you tube video.
