You won't need a whole new gearbox as it's probably a problem with the shift linkage. Do you have a mechanic that can look at it?

Also try reading through the 3 pages of information on this thread. It might help you.

what is wrong with my manual transmission?

Crewzin, he has an atx. From his terminology describing the problem, it's obvious that there isn't much mechanical ability here so he's going to end up taking it to a mechanic to have it fixed. I'm sure that there had to be a dealer, even over there, to sell these PTs initially, so that would be my first choice if I were him. Next in line would be to ask around and find a good mechanic, because that's where it's going to end up. Don't waste time. Do it now.

Jerry,

I originally thought he had an ATX but then started talking and going into gears 1 & 2 and 3 and 4 and auto's don't have that kind of choice. But I guess when he mentioned 'D' it should have told me better. The biggest problem with the ATX is the Solenoid Pack but without diagnosis, it's only a guess. He could just throw a new one in and hope for the best but I hate to tell someone to do that. Like you said, he needs a mechanic.

The factory manual has a troubleshooting guide.
Perhaps if he had one (hint, hint) it would help whomever does end up
working on it to get it on the go again.
