Transmission problem
1990 Geo Prizm 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 165000 miles

1990 Prizm with 5-speed manual. The transmission is stuck in 2nd gear. I pulled the likage assembly from the trans and can move the c-shaped linkages inside the transmission and put the trans into other gears, but then it's in whichever gear I put it in AND 2nd. Is the transmission in need of replacement/overhaul or is there another way to get the trans out of 2nd and working correctly again without pulling/rebuilding the trans?

Inspect the shift and select cable mounting brackets and hold down clips for wear/broke.
The cable itself may be broke, or a motor mount causing excessive engine movement.
