"Boom" ???


If the selector will move into position, but there is no drive, that means somehow the actuall cogs have been damaged. Driving with chunks of cogwheels inside the tranny is dangerous, they could get in the way and cause wheel lock-up, leading to an uncontrolled skid.

If the selector isn't moving into the 2nd gear postion, then the synchro rings are toasted and you can probably drive on without big risks.

It would be advisable to drain the oil and have a look at what comes out!
