New Problem: I get in my car and the shifter is stuck in what looks like fourth or reverse, I can't tell which. At first if I let the clutch out it would grind a little like it wasn't in gear, so I push on the shifter hard and it moves into what looks like third, now it will engage in a gear, I didn't move the car but I could feel it engage. Now I can move the shifter between 3rd and 4th and it engages in both gears but I can't find neutral and the shifter will not move left or right.
I read about the focus tower but my car has ball joints where the cables attach to the transmission, I'm thinking this was the 'revised' transmission they installed when the clutch and pressure plate broke in 2000.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Why would you want to do that? The cable system is totally BETTER than the rod shift. That's like trading in the Contour for a Hyundai?? That shifter was criticized by every car mag until they eventually redesigned it (cable).
