lost gears on 1993 Pontiac Sunbird

was starting out from first gear,when I got to 4th and going into 5th its like something became disconnected from the shifter,could move shifter knob around without no grinding,like there was no gears to go to.I think I know what it is but wanted some suggestions before I make final decision on what to do.

Your car has two shift cables, get a friend to move the shift linkage while you look at the movement of the linkage, see if a retaining clip has come off. If not support the vehicle and check the cables from underneath.
