TRANSMISSION PROBLEM

Transmission problem
1996 Volkswagen Jetta 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 159000 miles

HI and thx for the help.

Just encountered a problem with my manual transmission 20 mins ago.

Left the house everything was fine. Reverse worked backing out of driveway. Shifted through gears fine for around a 1/2mile. Came to a stop sign and then shifter went really loose and only seems to have 3rd or 4th gear. Was able to drive it home but only in that high gear.

Shifter is really loose/lots of play. No matter what gear I shift to it seems to be only that high gear.

Really need some help. Single father with three daughters and this is my only vehicle to get them to the bus stop and everywhere else they need to go.

Thx a million.
