Okay so last night I tried to drive my car and all went well till I got to the road at the end of my drive. I tried to put the car in first but nothing came of it. I tried to just move the shifter into any gear and none would work neither would reverse. I put the car in neutral and pushed it up the drive and today I took a closer look. I don’t know much about cars but I have been researching all day and found nothing. I didn’t know if the car (2004 Focus) had hydraulic, cable, or rod system but I don’t see a master cylinder so I’m pretty sure it’s not that. The clutch pedal feels like it’s normal self and the car runs and doesn’t start without the car being in neutral and clutch disengaged so I don’t think it’s the clutch safety switch. When I try to move the shifter it seems like it has a full range of motion but if I put it forward into the 1,3,5 gear areas I can still sweep it side to side. It has me really confused. I took the sleeve off the shifter to check if in fact the shifter does have full range of motion and based on the lubricant markings it seems so. I know this is a long shot but I hope someone has an idea since I can’t moved it to take to a mechanic.
Sorry for the double post but I guess you have to write a long title to make mods happy here
