Have a trans guy check fluid level as you can' t because of no dipstick and scan for codes.

This is a diesel isn't it? We dont' have that year in the u.S. And have no info on the transmission other than an automatic.

These are American cars but built I think I Europe or your country. As we don't hav ethe diesel option here because hardly anyone would buy it. But if you can see if it'sgot an internal or external shifting mechanism. The only thing I can find with a 6 speed on a Chrysler product is a journey and that is front wheel drive. If you have to pull up on the shifter to get to reverse se if there is a cable that has broken, either at shifter or trans. If it is directly internal then pull the shifter out and see if everything is lined up as it should kind of look like a rectangular hole. Sometimes the shifter rods slip and it goes out of place then won't go into one gear or another. Then look for wear on end of shifter like a lot of wear as that may be the problem. Also manually move each one forward and back to see if they all move, if not it can be a detent problem a bent shift fork inside as for reverse ther eis no synchronizer. I dont' have a pic of this so it makes it kind fo difficult If the shifter is external look for worn pins or the shifter itself allworn out. Like I said we dont' sell that in u.S so am kind a shooting in the dark on it.I'm including a pic bu tdont' think it wil be of much help.
