HI, MY CAR HAS GOT ITSELF STUCK IN 2ND GEAR, THE GEARSTICK MOVES FREELY AND WON'T ENGAGE ANY OTHER GEAR. ANY IDEA WHAT THIS COULD BE?

1999 Ford Focus • 130,000 miles

Car stuck in second, cannot get it out of second at all.

Could be a broken shifter cable or a issue inside the trans.

Look for something under the hood that may be dislodged or broken

There is a bushing on the top of the transmission that commonly breaks on this car, it is at the end of the shift cable

The cable busing is a good start buti still think you should be able to get it out of gear.
