I've had a local trans. shop rebuild my nv1500 abt a year before this: While shifting from 3rd to what I swear was 4th (met no resistance, no gears gind, and acted exactly as though I'd shifted into 4th) right as I released the clutch (35-40 mph btw) the vehicle stops, tires chirp a skid and I pop it in to neutral with my heart lurching out of my chest in fear.

As of right now, the truck shifts, and runs, everyone says I shifted into reverse. It rattles, and sounds like grinding, and can feel it in the shifter and hear it even in neutral. Since then I've driven it up to 3rd, and even reversed.

I thought it had a reverse inhibitor? Ive learnt that the reverse has a synchronized reverse gear, I heard no grinding while i was shifting, or releasing the clutch.
Doesnt a manual stall when you go into reverse from forward?

I need help actually knowing what happened with the trans, if I'm completely shot in the foot or only nicked. What all do I need to do to get my beloved truck back to road ready?

Going to be somewhere in the shifting mechanism. Block out bushing or retainer, detent ball or spring damaged, roll pin sheared or missing, shifter rail bushings worn. Somethings allowing 2 gears to be applied at the same time. 4th gear is a direct drive as it doesn’t use the counter shaft to drive a speed gear. Going to have to come out to be repaired.

How much would I have to change or how expensive would it be to convert it into a automatic?

year, model, 2wd, 2.2?
Lot of work and likely will cost more than the truck is worth unless it's something special. Like a low miles rust free Xtreme.

year, model, 2wd, 2.2?
1999 LE Rwd 2.2 L vortex, stepside... its value is that its my first truck, also i think itd be cheaper to fix it than buy a new vehicle... i dont have lots of options.

Im talking to someone about rebuilding the manual in it, im sure its the imput shaft bearing but im not sure. Is there a way to put an actual inhibitor on the reverse in forward?

I'd start by talking to that shop that did the repair last year. Sounds like someone there screwed up. Negotiating skills featuring politeness and persistence will probably be required.

It would cost way more to convert it to an automatic. You may as well have a donor truck to do it. I see NV1500 transmissions in the junkyard every time I go, they are still pretty common.

Plus, if you think the 2.2L is slow now, wait until you put an automagic behind it.

i would definitely pull another trans and throw it in, also.

its way cheaper to get a transmission than to have someone rebuild it. at the pick-n-pull by my house, there is about 6 trucks with the 2.2 and 5 speed because everyone wants the v6 and auto. I would think its the same every where but I have not been every where to verify that
