Gearshift lever will not go into gears! Help Please!

Gear shift lever will not go into gears. Transmission is in a gear and truck will drive/move, but gearshift lever does nothing but sway around! There was no loud bangs or strange noises. I went to drive the truck to the store and this happened. It basically feels like the shifter is no longer attached to the transmission internally.

Clutch? Transmission? Hydraulics?

Help/suggestions greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Erin

Probably broke the level itself.

Take the stick off. It is held on by four bolts I think.

Take the stick lower casting off (4 or 6 bolts, as said above)

you'll see the selector rod sticking out of the gearbox with a "cup" on it, this is where the "ball" on the end of the stick locates.

This "cup" is held onto the shaft with an allen (hex) head grub screw, get a suitable sized allen key and (after relocating it in the right place) crank it up.

you should either see a mark or an indent on the shaft where the cup should normally live.

some threadlock on the grub screw can help too.

I second the allen set screw on the shift linkage.

Just sucks the first set screw is tight. So it's probably the 2nd set screw?
