HELP!!!No first,third or fifth gear
I have a 98 accord coupe ex 4cyl 5speed manual transmission. The car has 177k and got a new cluth about 50k ago. The problem i'm having is that the car will not shift into first,third or fifth. It is as if the gears didn't exsist. Can't find them- no griding or anything. I can get into second, fourth and reverse with no problem.
I had a leak on the transmission that i let go for probably a little to long. A few months to be exact. During my last oil change, a couple weeks ago, i put my ratchet on those leaky tranny bolts and got them to snug down. It seemed that the leak had stopped.
Well last night is when my problems came forth. I made it home with the 3 gears i have and did an immediate tranny fluid change. Drove it around the block to see if maybe ( fingers crossed) and no dice.
With the hood popped open i can manually put the transmission into every gear. I left it in first, hopped in side, started it up- in first- and could not get the car out of gear.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
