Hello.

If your car will not go into gear the first things I would check are the shifter cable, linkage, and bushings. If there is a problem with any of those three components it may prevent the transmission from shifting into gear. I would also check the fluid level, just be sure that it is not low.

I'd suggest getting the vehicle looked at by a qualified technician, such as one YourMechanic, to diagnose your shifting issue and fix it accordingly.
