I'm not sure if the cables are stuck or what. My shifter is not moving. Anybody ever have this problem? I'm hoping the tranny isn't crapped out.

well take the shifter cables and try to move it around the shift actuator on the trans... if the shifter isnt moving its got to be the cables. Sometimes the C clamp moves around and then falls off its pretty ghey.. .happened to me alot..... but if you can move your cables into gear then they are not tight enough / c clamp is not on.

I know the c clamps are on. I'm gonna try and take them off the tranny. Don't know why it's doing this.

Yes.

I think it's stuck between two gears or something. it's "swapped." Not finished. heh

ok so you where driving your swapped car and now all you can do is move from 1st to 2nd?... if so sounds like shifter cables... happened on my car like 10x

I've actually never driven this car.. ever. It won't move at all. The shifter is stuck, but not the cables. it has to be stuck somewhere inside the transmission, because the cables move when detached.
