I had this same issue with my 1990 300zx back in September and it ended up being the transmission. All the teeth were broken off the second gear (which is also used for reverse). I had to have the vehicle towed to a transmission shop because I couldn't get it out of the garage. They ended up having to rebuild the transmission.
