    is that all you did is change the oil? sounds to me like your linkage isn't aligned right but you haven;t touched it so I got nothing

    Did you check the linkage for something being in the way? I know this was a common problem on the 3S platform when you messed with anything near the shift linkage. I'd start there and see if something is holding it up.

    I will check today- I was pushing the car back this morning and this dumbass lady pulled out behind me and stopped- My rear tires ended up in te rain drain- I got out the car "Move- wtf" But she probably didnt even know so when I got the car in the right direction I walked over and apologized..

    sounds like you removed the wrong "plug" . go to a trans shop. you probabily removed the retainer bolt for 5th/reverse.

    Don't know if this is helpful, but recently found a general trouble shooting manual for Celi's. For...

    "will not shift into one gear..."

    1) "bent shift fork"
    2) 'worn detent balls"

    Well I checked for that Bolt thats not the one I removed to change the oil- I tightend the bolt making sure it was not loose- I then went thru and inspected all the external bushings and u clamps holding the linkage on everything is in place....

    I check theSlave cylinder it has a little play but so doe smy GTS Slave cylinder-
