Hi guys, first of all, thank you so much for the time and effort you put into helping people with their car troubles. I have an 2003 Ford Escort ZX2 with 110,000 miles on it. It is the 1.9L SOHC, and I have a manual transmission. My problem is that the transmission is stuck in a gear and I cannot get it out. It even shuts off in neutral. I was driving on the highway and I shifted from second to third pretty fast and rough and missed third, grinding the gears. After I came off the highway it seemed okay at first but as I once again shifted from second to third I found that third gear was missing, there was no difference between third and neutral. Then minutes later I came to a stop and shifted into first, I could not get the car to go anywhere. Even in neutral the car would die if you let the clutch out. Which is why I suspect it to be broken in gear. Please help me with any assistance as to what the problem may be, how it can be fixed, and how much you think it may cost. Any information is helpful. And thank you again for your help.
