    Lost 4th gear and reverse after hitting object on road

    Was driving home today on the highway and I hit a piece of metal lying on the road, looked like a fallen car part.

    I noticed right after that the car wont shift into 4th gear. When i got in the garage I noticed putting the car in P was like N, and I the reverse does not work.

    No issues with transmission before, it was strong.

    Any ideas and what am i am looking at for costs for repairs to the automatic transmission.

    Look under? Did the object mess up the shifter cable linkage at the tranny?
    I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

    Shifter cable is located on driver side door right underneath.

    it connects to the tranny then goes into the gear box.

    shifter cable and/or linkage gets my vote allso, I do not think problem would be internal
