Prelude sh only goes into bottom 3 gears....

my 1, 3 and 5th gear dont go in or click in, i will shift into first the shifter will feel like its in 1st but when i try to accelerate its not in at all....and i have the shifter ALL the way in first....this happens with 3rd and 5th gear as well.


the car DOES go into 2nd, 4th and Reverse gear.....

check your shifter cable to make sure its attached to the lever ontop the tranny

Sounds like the transmission is toasted.. Check your fluid and check your shifter cables attached to the tranny..

I'm 98% sure your shift cables are just stretched. I've had this happen to me twice on 2 different Preludes. It feels real moshy in 1,3,5 and just fine in 2,4,R, then you just need new shift cables. Probably take about an hour to take your old ones out and put new ones in.
