Check your tranny fluid.

Possible broken or bent shift fork

check the reverse sensor. Open the hood and look on the passenger's side of the motor, where the transmission is. The sensor is all by itself, pretty mmuch in plain view, you'll see 2 wires coming out of it. If that little sensor is too tight, or doesnt have the right sized washer on it, you will not be able to put the car into reverse. Check that before you go spend a whole bunch of money on diagnosing / fixing other things.

Is it possible to swap transmissions of a 1994 Mitsubishi 3000gt and a Mitsubishi eclipse gs?

It is not. The GS is a tranny for an I4, so its not quite wide enough to match up to the V6 block. And if I remember correctly, the 94 manual was a 6-speed. You'd need to get the tranny from a 3rd generation Eclipse GT (I know this works because I did it on my 97) but this only works if you have a SOHC motor, which Mitsubishi didn't put in the 3000GT until 97, but Dodge put it in the Stealth from the beginning. You're probably gonna have to hunt for a Stealth/3000GT parts car.

Can you put a 3000gt vr4 engine in a 3000gt sl transmission?

Yes sure you can. ___________________________________________________ I wouldn't recommend it, if you are referring to the automatic in an sl, because, with all due respect (I'm a huge Mitsubishi fan), they were quite inferior with an average lifespan of 75,000-100,000 if you're lucky. If that's what you're asking I would DEFINITELY recommend using the getrag manual gearbox that were offered for the 3000gt's.
