Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

As long as there isn't something physically blocking shifter movement and you aren't able to physically engage third and fourth gear, this is an internal mechanical failure in the transmission. It would need to be removed and disassembled to determine exactly what would need to be replaced to repair it, whether it's a gear issue, a shift fork/linkage issue, etc.

The quickest and cheapest way to repair it would be with a used transmission.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
