Default Cant select 2nd, 4th or reverse gear...

Hi all,

Apologies if this is in the wrong please, I really am desperate for some help.

I have a Mazda premacy, 1999 on 152'000 miles.

It has had some issues with being still to select gears and a whine coming from 5th gear at any speed.

Today, whilst driving, I selected reverse, felt nothing wrong, drove 10 miles down the road, tried selecting 2nd, nothing at all, it feels like there is no selection chamber for 2nd, 4th or reverse gear, it's just solid.

I've had my mechanic change e gearbox oil but this hasn't worked, I'm almost sure it's the gearbox itself but was hoping for some input and clarification from members.

Please help me, I have not got much money and if there could be something else other than the box I'd really appreciate knowing about it.

Thanks in advance

Is this an automatic? If so, replace the modulator valve

It was a manual,

I had to buy a new box and have it fitted and it now works fine
