no fifth gear or reverse

So i got up today, got ready for work like normal.

Started my car up, sat there for about a minute.

It was about 35 degrees. Cold but not freezing. On days where it is like 20 degrees it will start right up and go without warming so I am not sure why it did this today.

I back out of my drive way, take off, start driving, and by the time i reach a road where I need 5th gear it wont let me go into fifth.

I didnt slam it into any gears or nothing out of the ordinary.

It almost feels like a brick wall restricting me from moving the shifter over, and it wont let reverse go either.

Any ideas of whats up?

Re: no fifth gear or reverse

synchros, Have you had any kind of grind noise when trying to go into 5th gear in the past? Even the slightest? This happened in a 5 speed truck I used to own and it was the same exact symtoms your talking about and yes I had to replace the tranny, it was cheaper to buy a used tranny than to rebuild the one I had.
