I had the same problem once. After a hard shift, one of the sets of bushings had broken and lodged such that I was not able to push forward enough on the shifter to actually get the car into 1 3 or 5 easily.

Hi Eddie

It'll be something causing a short throw forward. check the linkages and/or rods from gear stick to gear box.
