Default Stuck in Reverse

My 1993 2.3L RWD 5spd got itself stuck in reverse and I wound up driving 4miles backwards. When I got home I fiddled with the shifter for a good while and it seems to work fine now. What happened and is it going to get worse?

Default Re: Stuck in Reverse

your reverse lock out cable may have too much slack in it. when you push the clutch in does it sound like 2 metal cups, one inside the other spinning around, metal on metal?
