I went to start the car, started normally but I CAN'T shift into gear! Any help? Where can I start to fix this?

Does it shift with the car off?

Have someone shift with the car off while you look under the hood. On top of the transmission is a plastic shifter bracket, this can break. If it breaks you can't shift.

Any updates? I believe it's a 13 or 10 mm bolt that holds it on. Just because of age it deteriorates and goes out of alignment. Make sure the clutch fluid is changed every 2 years too since it absorbs water.

YES! It was the problem. The part is broken and I am ordering a new one. They should have made it out of metal.
