First what was the question about fixing your car. Your car probably weighs in the 3000 lb range and most junks get about $300 becaue there is rubber and not all steel also plastic etc.

Here is the Question I started with.

I have a 1989 ford probe turbo GT that just recently will not shift out of 1st gear?
My Clutch is firm and the transmission fluid is red and I just needed a little of that.
Is there anyone that can give me instructions or steps to take to see if it is tranny gone bad or is it something Simple?
Maybe I should put them together?

And thank you for responding to my question
Any help that I receive will be greatly appreciated :)
I REALLY do not want to Junk My Baby

You have to check your linkage to see if that is working correctly or not. With that old of a car it could be needing a rebuild do to a bent fork or bad synchronizer. You could alwya sget another trans form a junkyard, but if it's not a clutch problem then it will need tearing apart to see what is wrong with it.

So I really want to Do Everything that I can to save her Come Tuesday morning Call the Company to see how they came up 1700.00 and if possible is there any way they would part it out?
Any Suggestions on that Avenue?

Have you tried shifting out of first with the engine off? If it will do that it's a clutch problem. Or your linkage is jammed. You'll have to have a pro look at this because you seem to have limited mechanical ability.
