2002 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 2.2 5spd Getrag

Slips in reverse, doesn't want to shift into second (feels like it won't click in). This means that I have to shift from 1st to 3rd.

This could be caused by me trying to force it into reverse before I figured out that I had to lift the collar.

The service vehicle light is on, and it "bings" at me when I put it into reverse. Any ideas?

Any resemblence in an MT to an AT with a "spider gear? I know those go bad on Chevy trucks...

Pull up the shifter boot and check the linkage. You may have bent something out of place.
