Check the shifter cables at both the shifter and the transmission.

Also, there is a mounting bracket about 14" away from where the cables connect into the transmission. There is a plastic, spring-loaded lock nut that holds the cable in place. You need to make sure that the cables are positioned correctly inside that bracket. I lost 5th and reverse because one cable had come loose and popped out of the mounting bracket.

they are working though because i moved them and i can watch the cables move when someone is moving the shifter inside

interesting. i had the exact same thing happen, and i reached down in on the back of my transmission, and found that the plastic cup on the end of the cable had come off the ball. i snapped it back on and it was fine.

Out of courisity, how are you testing this? If that is the case, then I would say its an interal transmission problem.

so i found out what it was. on the top of the tranny the actual shift shaft had to come off. when i took it off found out that the cold rolled pin that holds the assembly together to move the gears broke. so i had to replace the pin and now everything works fine again.
