Default 1993 Nissan nx1600 stuck halfway in 5th gear?

I have a 93 nissan nx1600 5 speed manual transmission. Tonight driving home I was in 5th gear. I started to smell a funny odor. Then my transmission started ginding. I pushed the clutch in and pulled over. My car is stuck halfway in 5th gear. And the stick will not pop in neutral or any other gear. It starts up fine and the clutch pedal feels no different than normal. When I let off the clutched it grinds. I can't move it. And I have discovered it has had a transmission leak. I tried checking the fluid to the clutch and the transmission. I cannot find anywhere ti check levels or even add.fluids. any ideas

Most manual transmissions don't have dipsticks to check your fluid. If it's leaking and you just had a major problem that to me spells trouble. What does more is that you had an odor and grinding. Sounds to me like something about fifth gear went haywire and now it's locked in and trying to do anything about it and grinding just makes it worse. If you could get it out of fifth gear you wouldn't be able to use fifth again, and if it's low on fluid there's almost certainly irreversable damage to the other gears as well and they may be ticking time bombs.

Time for a tranny rebuild.
