85 GLI, 4th not engaging, all others ok...

Sounds like a bent shift fork problem no? I don't imagine I lost any gear parts and I've yet to pull it apart, but just trying to get an idea of possible problems....

Will it go into 5th? or stuck at 3rd and no more.Stuck at 3rd should be a pin bent or broken in the shifting drum behind the front cover.It has to turn the drum to 4th before it can turn it to 5th.5th goes ok,then the drum is turning and 4th gear is bad in the trans or it's shifting fork bent(inside the block).
