If it's a 3spd manual, all I can think of is grabbing the side rods (main linkage) and smacking them into submission. It' a verry common toploader problem when things aren't in great shape linkage wise. Otherwise, I vote for something FUBARed inside. :eek:

Hello.:)I'd disconnect the linkage arms from the transmission and make sure that both shift levers were in the middle position and then reconnect and adjust the linkage.If one of the levers was in gear when you hooked up the linkage it would do what you describe.Hope that helps. :)
