Check shift cable connection at trans 1st. If still good then you have to remove console to check connection at shifter.

Glad it worked out for you. Did you determine with certainty what the issue was. You would not want it happening far from home.

Lol not gonna lie, it was a good time to have someone in the car with me. Took two people regardless though. Everything feels good, gears just got stacked and took some working loose.

Had that happen to me in my dad's 964. In that case, though, it was stuck in 4th and the plastic bushings in the shift rods finally disintegrated and the rod fell off. That was fun starting from stops.

New inserts in the cups, bam. Shifts like butter.

I once had a manual shift car that would hang up hard in gear from time to time. Turns out the main bushing at the base of the shifter was worn out. Replacing the shifter mechanism fixed the problem.
