Transmission stuck in third gear

(1999 Ford Escort)
in Muskegon, MI on November 13, 2010
i was just driving my 5 speed escort down the road and went to shift from third to fourth and it is stuck in third gear. i tryed shutting it off and it will shift through the gears but when i get to third it is really sloppy and makes no noise in the transmission. even when the shifter is in neutral it is still in gear. what is causing this?

Unfortunately, it sounds like a shift linkage or shift fork issue, or other internal transaxle issue. You will need to have it looked at. Best of is a link to repair facilities near you...
