That's funny, I had the same exact problem except lost 1,3, and 5.  I
think I'd prefer your loss over mine, I hated slipping the clutch so
much in 2nd to get it to roll.

Anyway, the problem most likely is this small bolt on top of the
transmission (accessible by opening the hood and reaching down) on the
shifter linkage that has come loose.  Simply tighten it (and apply
locktite), and you're well on your way.

I noticed another 200q20v wagon at Shokan that they just brought in had
this same exact problem.  This and the fusible link for the rad. fan
seems to be the most popular annoying 200q20v failures of 2001.

i recently purchased a 200q20v  and that very night I lost 2,4, and
reverse gears.  i believe that the ball below the shift rod is broken
and think I have to replace the whole shifter mechanism.  Any info is
much appreciated. Thanks.
