Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If in fact the transmission will shift into 4th gear and it acts like neutral then the problem is internal, you have either a bad 4th gear and or the shift fork is not moving it. The only way to know is going to require removal and a tear down and inspection.
