I have the 2000 Turbo 5 Speed Manual. Just bought it and a week later the clutch went. Had that replaced but third was hard to get into. Changed the gear oil, changed the shifter cable ends and tried to adjust the cables as per the famous turbodieselgeek youtube video. This cleared up the issue with third gear. First Second third and fourth now shift smoothly. However, in the process, I lost the use of 5th gear instead. The neutral plate that lets you go over toward 5th will not engage. If I try to adjust it again, I lose reverse instead. I cannot get both to work at the same time. If I move the shifter up or down from under the hood while having someone shift into 5th inside the car it goes in. If I get 5th to function, then reverse goes away. The reverse lights go on, the car appears to be in reverse under the hood, but it will not engage and actually go in reverse. This is driving me crazy any ideas?
