STARTS AND RUNS FINE. PUTTING TRANNY IN ANY GEAR AND IT DOES NOT MOVE. WHY

1990 Chevrolet Truck • 30,000 miles

5 Spd tranny. I can shift into any gear with truck running and it will not move. In fact there is no response at all. Clutch has been engaging at the bottom but now clutch or no clutch nothing happens no matter what gear you are in.

This could be several things. You could have a bad pressure plate, something internal (gear, input shaft.) Could have broken in the transmission. If you are sure the clutch is working, you need to remove the transmission to check different things.
