I bought my 1983 volvo about a year and a half ago and I have to say that it;s my favorite car. It's my baby. However, while pulling away from a stop light I could not shift into first or second gear. 3rd and 4th work fine so I feathered it into third and continued driving to my destination which was a mile away. I drove it home( which was about 25 miles away) using the same method. I absolutely love this car and want to fix it for cheap.
Do you

Hi
Can shifter be moved into first and second position? If yes then 1-2 shift sleeve and lock ring are damaged. If no then roll pin may have come pout of 1-2 shift fork.
Hope this helps
