    Do you mean the shifter inside the car doen not go into gear (Park, reverse, neutral, drive, etc..) or when put into drive the car dosn't go anywhere? The shifting hard is a common problem with this trans. On this webpage you can see for yourself by putting in your car info at the top of the screen and click "Get Started". Then at the left put the mouse cursor over "Problem Repots" then click on "Most Reported". If the car does not shift out of park you have two (2) problems. I will get back to you when you answer my question because I don't know what you mean by "now it won't go in any gears".

    If there is nothing wrong with the shifter cable to trans. which it's a posibility but doubtful there is something wrong internally to the trans. and it needs to be diagnosed by an auto shop. If the trans. needs to come out have them replace hte pressure control solenoid. If it isn't what was causing the clunking it will go bad as they all do. It's a few dollars more for the part but should cost you no labor since the trans. needs to come out. Sorry for the bad news and good luck. Be sure to have it diagnosed by a mechanic as they can actully get there hands on it rather than someone like me that can one get on a keyboard and give you a diagnosis based on words.
