My 1991 Toyota pickup's (manual transmission) gearshift got stuck once. Turned out to be the linkage immediately under the stick shifter. $3.00 part, Dealer charged $89 labor to install. But I was relieved it didn't involve transmission. These days I'd have bought the part and installed it myself. Eliminate this-- it's the part right under the shifter's shaft. Maybe you can see the part under your gearshift's boot? '87 4Runner wicked vintage! Hope you get it squared away James M.

It's really weird I can't even get it to go in neutral it's just stuck in 3rd even with force it won't come out of 3rd in too neutral ?

heck, I could drive it in third alone, done that many times. PRAY it's a linkeage problem, and not broken internal third gear, that costs a ton
