Hey everyone. Today i had bought a 1988 Audi 90 5 speed. On my way home i messed up and shifted down into 1st going way to fast and i heard a loud vang. Now it wont shift into any gear. I got home and when i shifted into first, it stayed but the car would only stall and not take off. Then in neutral it would go in reverse. Please help me figure out whats wrong.

What it sounds like to me is a fork inside the trans broke, thats why its always in reverse. Can the shifter select other gears?

Hello
I would say either the fork broke or the shifter may have moved out of place somehow. Im assuming the clutch pedal feel ok
