Thanks, ***** ***** out a differential or brake issue.

These leaves the concern to be in the transmission with the shift forks and shift rail. It is in 2 gears at the same time which is locking up the main and countershaft. The transmission will need to be removed and rebuilt.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

That's not a answer.. How do I fix so I can get it home
Transmission Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 8 months ago

You will not be able to fix it without dropping the transmission out and taking it apart. The shifter is stuck in one gear and inside the transmission 2 synchronizers are engaged. You can yank hard on the shifter though you are likely to break more.

U suck I didn't get anything from u
Transmission Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 8 months ago

Sorry, you feel that way. I did not break your car and there is not a simple easy fix. Once you do get it towed and repaired, hopefully, you will find my response was correct.

Chris, Merry Christmas
