My vehicle originally would not shift into reverse or fifth gear, just would not engage. Took it to the dealer i bought it and they lubed it and it worked for a few days. Then all of a sudden when I left my driverway and shifted into what i thought was first I stalled. I restarted the car and when I shifted into what i thought was first it was very loose. The shifter can freely move across the entire upper part where first and fifth should be and same on the bottom, i can shift into fourth but no second. Reverse will also not work. So now I was stuck going to work driving in third and fourth gear only. Any help on what this might be would be appreciated as I do not trust the dealer i took it to and according to my warranty I have to give them the option to fix it before it will be covered.
