    wow that was a horribly worded diagnosis. you sound like one of my goofy friends, in which case i recommend taking it to a professional.

    i believe the word you were looking for was 'ceased', which means 'stopped'.

    sounds like syncros are shot and gear is probably toast too. yeah deffinatly a trans issue...

    if i remember right, gears 1/3 are the same component, as 2/4 and 5/R. 'one gear' contains 2 gearings. ..if i remember right.

    ya, instead of buying another stock OEM one, i suggest you get it rebuilt with carbon coated syncros, which will help those powershifts baby your gears at least a little
