Issue shifting into 2 4 and reverse
So I just got done putting my car back together. I replaced the input shaft bearing and all the seals. I didn't touch anything else. So I just drove it and noticed that it doesn't want to go into second forth or reverse. I did notice that when I was putting the shifter cable linkage back on that the bigger bushing is shot there's quite a bit of play in it. Could that b the problem cuz I didn't touch anything else in the transmission just what needed to be replaced. It's an manual transmission 5 speed. F5M42 is the numbers on the case. Any input will help out allot. Thanks for your time
Yes, that worn shifter bushing is most likely the issue. Go ahead and replace it, and also check the shifter cable and linkage positioning - adjust as necessary.
