Vue - Manual trans - No gears
I'll apologize in advance if you've heard this one before.
'04 Vue 2.2 Manual trans. 264,000 miles.
Less than 2K miles on clutch. New shifter cables.
After recently replacing the shift cables (the stick was very stiff), the the car was difficult to shift into first (that is, you could move the stick there but not get first) and would resist engaging reverse, mostly popping out. Assumed the adjustment was off until yesterday when driving up the street. Went to shift from second to third and the gears vanished along with anything that feels like shift gating.
Running or not, you can stir the stick like a spoon in mashed potatoes without resistance, or unfortunately, gear selection. Zip. All neutral, all the time.
Shift tower, cables and adjusters appear to be fine. The linkage/yokes at the trans where the cables hook up appears to be answering the cables and moving freely, too. Wondering if something snapped internally that would disconnect the guts from the linkage, and how difficult it would be to repair if it has. I do not think it's clutch as that wouldn't have affected the sensation of shift gating, plus it's been recently replaced.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Re: Vue - Manual trans - No gears
How do you know the clutch master and slave are working. There's a general consensus among repair shops to replace all the clutch parts including the hydraulics to prevent revisiting a repair a second time. At 245k miles, nothing lasts forever. It would be very difficult to damage a manual xmission gear box when its easier to wear out clutch hydraulics and clutch.
