Does the shifter go through all the gears properly when not running?
Does the clutch engangement feel normal up until those gears?
Transmission failures are unfortunately common on these cars. First step is to check condition and level of the trans gear oil. There are some high-end lubricants that can improve shift quality of these cars, but you're probably beyond that.
