Default got a 2003 5speed and it wont go into 1 and 2

reverse is lower right
the gear shifter feels like it does not go into 1 and 2nd but does go into 3 4 5 r. the clutch mc reservoir was low when I got it. added fluid . the rpms drop a lot when I try to move forward. conks out at at times. ive got the center console out and I see that there is a screw on the cable that can be adjusted. im not gonna touch it until I hear from someone. car has 133k miles.

I would look at the bushings before messing with the ajusments. Replacement bushings widely available. Look under the air box at where the cables connect.

it seems that one of the cables has come unhooked. I tried to loosen the bolts on the bracket by the battery tray but I could feel it twisting the head. I want to replace the bushings and will do so. car shifts great now thanks
