Transmission problem
1994 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 200000 miles

I recently bought a 1994 Escort 5-speed. I always have to stand on the clutch hard to start it, but then it would shift fine. This morning I went out, started it, and then the gear shift wouldn't move into any gear. I can shift easily when the car is off. Frankly, I don't even know where to check the transmission fluid, since I've never owned a Ford before. What can I check? What are some possible causes? The car gets 36mpg, so I hope it can be fixed relatively cheaply. Thank you!

Do you
have the same problem?
