Newbie here. Have a 2005 500 es I bought it used It will go in 1st 2nd and 5 th gear. I tried to manually shift it. Still same thing. It will engage in 4 th if you are stopped but once you give it gas it pops out. Do I have bent shift fork? Any help would be appreciated

Here's a link to the service manuals available for download if that may help while you are waiting for an answer. I have an FM so not much help on ES.
